Work With Us
Full Time 2020 – Are you someone who has spent a few years working on farms and are now looking to take the next step?
Are you thinking about starting your own farm, but want some more experience under your belt?
Come work with us at Local Roots Farm! We are currently hiring ONE position for the 2020 season. Minimum one full season working as field crew on a commercial-scale vegetable farm is required. Tractor experience is strongly preferred.
In the 12 years we have been farming, 10 of our former employees have gone on to start their own farming operations or work as farm managers. If you are interested in pursuing a long-term career farming, we are one of the best places to work and learn.
Most of the people on our crew stay with us for years. Low staff turnover means you will always be working with someone with years of experience to pass on. And when and if you do go on to start your own operation, we provide mentorship and business and financial planning help to get your farm off the ground.
Terms for all full-time positions
– Paid sick/personal time, accrues 1 hour for every 40 hours worked
– Farm produce for personal use
– On-farm housing is available to rent
– Pay starts at minimum wage ($13.50 for 2020), and may be higher DOE
We seek hardworking, mature, people who can work with minimal oversight. Prior farming experience required. Please email jason @ localrootsfarm.com if you are interested in learning more or applying.
