Hiring: Assistant Field Manager & Harvest Crew
Farm: Valleyfield Farm
Location: Echo Bay, near Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
Accommodation: on-farm accommodation/meals may be available
Valleyfield is focused on building rich topsoil to nurture flavourful, nutrient dense foods through regenerative agriculture. We are a mixed farm with pasture based livestock (cattle, pigs, poultry), organically grown vegetables and cut flowers, farmstead baking, and preserves for CSA home delivery and an on farm market.
We are looking to fill a variety of positions this season. We are looking for 1-2 feild crew members with an interest to learn and be involved in all areas of the farm operation as well as someone with experience looking to further their knowledge and take on the responsibility to assist in the management of daily operations in their area of interest.
This is going to be an extra busy season of growth and expansion on the farm. Our barn is currently being restored and repurposed as our food preperation hub and we are building a passive solar greenhouse extension to provide 4 season greens production. If you have any interest or skills related to building, please let us know!
On farm accommodation/meals may be available. Negotiated pay based on experience. A full season commitment (May-October) is preferred. However, we are willing to work out other arrangements. Full time and part time positions available, Monday-Friday 7am - 3pm. Most importantly, we require people who are strong in mind, body, spirit and who are able to work cooperatively and independently.
Please note: We are only able to hire Canadian citizens. Field Crew positions may be funded through Canada Summer Jobs and require youth under the age of 30 to meet eligibility requirements.
