Our farm is on 40 acres, including 25 acres of fields, 5 acres of barns and paddock area and 10 acres of forest. We are located about 5 minutes SW of St.Thomas, ON and about 30 minutes drive from London. About 10 minutes drive straight north of Port Stanley on Lake Erie.
We are a small-scale vegetable grower, using intensive growing methods and we sell directly to the consumer through 2 farmers markets and a CSA. Over the past 8 years we have grown to a point where we are financially stable. We grow year-round and have done a lot of work with season extension and storage. This is an excellent opportunity to see how a small organic vegetable farm runs and get experience with growing, harvest, building and marketing vegetables directly to consumers. We are investing in equipment and processes in 2021 that will allow us to service over 400 box customers per week as well as our local farmers' markets.
We are in search of full season farm help for 2021, starting as early as April or May. Work will be 40-50 hours per week and involves all aspects of our farm from greenhouse growing to transplanting, harvesting, box packing, weeding and markets. No previous experience necessary, but preference given to background and interests in farming / groceries and retail sales. This is a seasonal job with potential to move to a full time position.
