Position: Organic Farm Worker
Type: full-time paid, May - October
Farm: Santosha Farm
Location: Burk’s Falls, ON (between Huntsville and North Bay), Ontario
Santosha Farm is a non-certified organic farm with a strong focus on ecological principles. The farm is 82 acres of meadow, wetland and forest. We have been expanding the farm for the past six years, and in 2019 we will be growing a mix of vegetables, berries, and edible flowers on 1.5 acres. After experimenting with sales techniques for four years, we sell at one farmer’s market and local resorts. We recently partnered with an amazing chef, and we have some exciting projects planned for 2019! In addition to the farm business, we will be building and launching an on-site cycling tour and winter adventure business which will be integrated with the farm.
This is a full-time paid position, 40 hours/week at $14/hour, from May to October. Evening and some weekend work will be required. We are looking for a serious applicant who is committed to helping us grow our farm and work co-operatively with us to contribute ideas and experiences. A positive attitude is a must. We have no on-site accommodation, but we would help inquire about local rental possibilities. You will need your own transportation.
Benefits: We live in a gorgeous area! If you love the outdoors, there are many opportunities for recreation. We live within a 20 minute drive to three boat launches and two public beaches. We are situated closely to Algonquin Park access points in Kearney and South River, and we are one hour from Parry Sound and access to Georgian Bay. We have a canoe, kayak, and an extra bike to share if you don’t have your own. There are two yoga practitioners in Burk’s Falls. The town of Huntsville is 40 minutes away, which is a larger town for entertainment.
