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 accepting applicants for our 2020 main season.

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.

– Paid sick/personal time, accrues 1 hour for every 40 hours worked
