Join our Crew
We are currently accepting applications for one crew member for Fall/Winter 2017. We have one full-time position beginning in November and lasting through March. Ideally this member will continue on for the main season, March - November 2018. Pay is hourly and competitive.
Winter on the farm requires a diverse set of skills. This winter we will be building a 30x200' high tunnel, clearing woods and constructing a permanent deer fence, planting an orchard, logging, finishing our pack shed and general farm upkeep. This is in addition to farming 2 acres of produce for weekly Saturday markets.
Additional tasks include greenhouse seeding and maintenance, weeding, harvest and wash and prep for market. We also have opportunities in tractor operation and cultivation, irrigation setup and market sales based on interest and skill.
Our farm is entering our fifth year of production. We farm 10 acres of vegetables, fruits, rice and dry beans. We sell at four area farmers markets. We grow using organic methods and are in transition to Certified Organic.
We are looking for applicants who are focused, enthusiastic, and interested in contributing to their community and environment through active involvement in the food system. Previous farm experience is preferred but we are also open to those who have not farmed before and are eager to learn quickly.
Our farm is located in Rougemont, NC close to Hillsborough and Durham. We do not have on-farm housing. Lunch is provided daily as a group staff lunch using produce from the farm.
Email us at email@example.com to apply. Please tell us a little about yourself, your past experience with farming, and why your are interested in farming with us.
