Fresh Earth Farms (www.FreshEarthFarms.com) is a Community Supported Agriculture farm located just east of the Twin Cities (south of Afton). We are seeking an enthusiastic person or two to assist in the laborious, never-ending task of supplying fresh, wholesome vegetables to our CSA members.
The ideal candidate will have:
- An overwhelming interest in sustainable agriculture
- The ability to lift 50 lbs – over and over and over and over again
- Experience in farming or farm related work
- The ability to work independently
- An enthusiastic attitude
- Boundless energy
- The desire to hoe vegetables for hours at a time
- An interest in crawling around in the dirt
- A sense of humor
- Mud boots
The position starts in mid-April/May and ends at the end of October.
This could be either a full-time position or two part-time positions depending on candidates.
Part time positions are 2 to 4 days per week (Monday – Friday). Work days during the spring are dependent on the weather. Once harvesting starts in mid-June you will be expected to work at a minimum Mondays and either Wednesdays or Thursdays from 7:30 to 3:30. Additional days may be added depending on interest and workload.
Full time position is Monday – Friday.
This is a paid position.
We do not provide housing though we are a convenient commute from the Twin Cities (20 minutes east of downtown St. Paul).
This is an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to experience farming while maintaining some level of sanity. There will be many educational opportunities while hoeing, harvesting and washing produce.
