Green Being Farm is looking to hire a full-tim farm assistant.
We are a fully diversified, ecological farm with a focus on producing "Food to Feel Good About". We run a 100 member Winter and a Spring CSA with a focus on high quality produce from both the field and 3 hoophouses. We also graze a herd of about 20 grassfed beef, a herd of pastured pigs, and we also graze pastured poultry. We strive to give our animals the best lives possible and raise them in a way that does not compromise their dignity nor that of the environment.
The Farm Assistant will gain experience working on all parts of the farm and achieve a high level of competence with both vegetable cultivation and animal husbandry. Being a small but diversified farm means that there is lots of variation in the work we do every day, which avoids monotony.
We are very happy to make this a shared position if two people would like to apply together. Work week is 40 hrs/week. Wage is $15/hr, plus meat, vegetables and eggs from our farm, and there is a lovely apartment on the farm available for rent, which is deducted from your wage.
Time span: May 1st-Dec 31st with the option to spend the winter
Candidates are required to have previous farming experience, a drivers' license and be able to lift 50 lb loads.
To apply: please email Tarrah with resume and cover letter, and a reference from a farm. Or feel free to just get the ball rolling by emailing me with any questions you have:
Looking forward to hearing from you!
