Rooted Oak Farm is an organic vegetable and cut flower farm located in North Augusta, Ontario. We grow on 12 acres with three acres in production, serving a 100 member summer CSA, 50 member fall CSA, and one farmer’s market. Having operated on rented land for the last four seasons, we are now entering our fifth on a recently purchased farm. There will be tasks that are specific to the start up of a new farm such as greenhouse building, fencing, operating with limited infrastructure, etc. that will be unique to this season.
The successful candidate will work alongside the two owners of Rooted Oak having a heavy hand in all aspects of operating a market farm. Candidates can expect a seasonal flow of tasks, greenhouse work and transplanting in the spring, weeding and more transplanting in the early summer, and harvesting, wash/packing in the late summer, bulk harvesting and farm clean-up in the fall.
We operate mostly at a hand scale with the help of machinery when possible. Candidates must be comfortable working in all weather conditions (come prepared with weather-appropriate gear), amenable to repetitive tasks, and able to lift up to 50lbs.
The ideal candidate is hard-working, physically fit, interested in market farming, and has some farming, landscaping, tree planting, or outdoor work experience.
Start/ end date: May 3rd – October 8th
Schedule: 35 hours per week. Start/ end time will be dependant on the candidate’s preference as well as the season (i.e. earlier in the summer to avoid extreme heat)
Wage: $15/ hour
Must have reliable transportation to and from work
