The Farm Crew works closely with owners Tim & Caroline and six veteran employees who have been with the farm between 2 and 4 years. Employees gain on-the-job training and many perks including unlimited vegetables and farm lunch. Two years prior experience on a farm and valid drivers license is preferred. Ideal candidates will be passionate about good food, reliable and efficient, eager to learn, have excellent communication skills and attention to detail.
