Grow with us! We are seeking an experienced greenhouse grower to join our 2021 team.
Type: Full Time
Start Date: ASAP
At Paradise Fields, we aim to grow the most nutrient-rich fruit and vegetables on the planet. We do so by fully mineralizing our soil, improving the soil microbiome, investing in state-of-the-art infrastructure, and using regenerative agriculture as a foundation of our farming practices.
Our 64-acre farm, with forests, ponds, and an environmentally sensitive area, is located in the Green Belt corridor of Hamilton. We currently farm ten acres – with 9,000 apple trees bearing 50+ varieties of apples, some pears, and a few plum and paw paw trees. Around five acres are dedicated to our vegetable production and two acres for various berries, including haskaps, strawberries, raspberries, and kiwi berries. Three acres of land has been designated for a future agri-tourism and wellness centre. We are currently expanding our greenhouses to allow for year-round production.
The Greenhouse Production Supervisor is responsible for managing crop growing in our 30,000 sq. greenhouse. This person is also responsible for the proper care of the greenhouse, including the principles and practices of plant cultivation, propagation, and protection.
Responsibilities & Duties
Minimum 3 years of relevant job experience as follows:
A typical shift is 8 am to 4:30 pm, with allowances for longer and shorter days based on weather and workload typical at any farm. We do not work Saturdays on our farm or at markets. The occasional Sunday shift will be necessary.
We are seeking a full-time worker with a long-term commitment to grow with us. There is a standard 3-month probationary period; however, we will sit down after one month to discuss if this is a good fit for both Paradise Fields and the hired candidate.
