We ARE NOT CURRENTLY accepting NEW MEMBERS FOR OUR FARM CREW.
Job Title: Farm Crew
Hours: Part-time. Must be available 2-3 weekday mornings between 7am-11am (spring/fall) and 6am-10am (summer)
Position Period: Flexible start and end dates. Ideally available to start by April 1 and work through the end of October.
Fair Hiring Statement Full Heart Farm is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity of expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status. Full Heart Farm encourages applicants of all backgrounds to apply. Objective: We are seeking happy + hardworking folks to join our farm crew for the 2024 season!
Our goal at Full Heart Farm is not only to grow beautiful, Instagram-worthy produce and flowers, but to show others how effortless it can feel to cook with and enjoy farm-fresh food. We do this by maintaining extremely high attention to detail in the fields and cooking A LOT of delicious food.
Our other goal is to create a sustainable farm operation. For us that means that in addition to taking care of the soil, we take care of ourselves. We HUSTLE in the fields and at the washing station during the mornings so that we can spend most of our day doing other things we enjoy: cooking, reading, and spending time with family. It also means that our four kiddos frequently learn and play alongside us while we work.
An ideal candidate will enjoy rigorous early morning work (it's a fast paced job focused on efficiency!), not squeal upon finding an insect in salad mix, and laugh repeatedly at carrots shaped like pants.
Duties and Responsibilities: Farm crew members will work directly with the owner of the farm, farm manager, and other farm crew members on a wide range of tasks including but not limited to:
Greenhouse work (seed starting, maintenance, harvest)
Cleaning, sanitizing, organizing equipment and materials
Maintaining high standards of hygiene
And the ever-essential farm requirement: “other tasks, as needed”, as there is always something unexpected that requires an extra set of hands!
Schedule: This is a SUPER part-time position, at 8-12 hours a week, designed for energetic folks who have off-farm interests. All crew members will be expected to work on Monday mornings from May through August, as this is our busiest harvest day. The remainder of the schedule can be tailored to best fit the needs of the crew member and the farm. Starting and ending times are adjusted seasonally. During the spring/summer we start work as early as 6AM and we rarely work past noon, year-round, aside from operating FarmShare pick-up and restaurant deliveries.
