NOW hiring part time employees

I am hiring part time employees this year. :) I am excited to share this farming experience with others and grow community on our farm. As this small farm continues to grow, I am looking for other like-minded individuals who are passionate about learning to grow their own organic vegetables &herbs, holistically care for animals, and live sustainably minded. There are endless lessons to be observed in nature and constant inspiration from all its miracles. To be clear and honest, farm work can be physically demanding, somewhat repetitive, and most always pretty dirty and sweaty! But, it is also very rewarding and fulfilling work for those with a farming lifestyle mindset. We will sweat together, laugh, problem solve, share stories, conquer big tasks, observe nature, constantly learning and creating possibilities, and of course, enjoy nutritious meals from food we have grown with our own hands. I want to encourage employees to take produce, herbs, and flowers home too. I love to cook and share with this community.
