FIELD CREW

- SEASONAL/PART-TIME POSITION -

 

Soleil’s Farm, a Certified Organic mixed vegetable market farm, is hiring for our Field Crew.


This is a part-time, seasonal position ideal for someone interesting in learning more about working on an organic farm, enjoys good physical work, loves working outdoors and being part of a kick-ass team!

 
We are a small team, and in order to ensure the farm runs smoothly this position requires a strong team commitment and a dedication to clear communication.  


The work will be demanding both physically and mentally, and thus we expect our team members to have an understanding of their personal limitations.

Most tasks require quality work done at a quick pace, often under pressure. Ideal team members have quick hands and a commitment to improving task efficiency. We often describe farming as endless problem solving - the ability to roll with rapidly shifting priorities, and a positive & collaborative attitude are essential qualities on our team.
