Who We Are:
Earth to Table Farm is an organic vegetable and fruit farm specializing in wholesale produce for Pearle Hospitality restaurants. On our four-acre production in Millgrove, Ontario we grow high-quality vegetables (including salad greens, tomatoes, roots, edible flowers, and herbs) along with apples, some stone fruit, berries, and hay.
We’re committed to regenerative farming; transitioning towards minimal tillage, building soil organic matter, and growing on deep compost covered raised beds.
The farm is a fast-paced environment and an excellent place to learn and share skills with enthusiastic and knowledgeable team members. Our team is full of caring, dedicated employees, and we look forward to welcoming a new field manager to join in our regenerative agriculture mission.
You will assist in all aspects of the market garden operation, including planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packaging vegetables. You will also assist in pest control, irrigation, greenhouse work, and tractor work if appropriate.
Once trained, you will be responsible for checking field and product inventory, communicating daily harvest plans, supervising produce washing, processing, packaging, and keeping the cooler cleaned and organized for our delivery team.
Quick hands, strong observation skills, and the ability to follow instructions and complete jobs in a timely manner is required.
You will be an integral player of our small, hard-working team, and a commitment to the full season is essential. Winter work opportunities will be available.
