Crew members start at $9-10/hr depending on experience. These are entry level positions, which would suit someone either interested in farming or looking for more production farm experience. No experience is necessary but any experience gardening or landscaping would be beneficial.

Working on a farm can be hard work but also educational and fun. You need to be prepared to work in various weather conditions, learn and complete many different farming tasks, and follow instruction. Becoming a well-rounded farmer takes many, many seasons of hardwork, observation, and experimentation!

We are looking for staff that are reliable, with a good work ethic, and positive outlook. In return we offer a modest wage, and the opportunity to learn the practical aspects of farming biodynamically, as well as taking part in some local PASA workshops throughout the season. There are usually a few food perks throughout the season, which, include a share of vegetables each week.

Full-time, full season employees are preferred but we also consider part-time or summer employees as well (minimum 20hrs/week). Full season runs from mid-March through mid-November. Full time hours vary a little week to week but are generally 7am-5pm, Monday-Friday (with an hour for lunch). Additional hours are available from 7am-noon on Saturday’s during the main harvest season. If you have a vacation booked, we can usually accommodate but need to know of any time off in advance so we can approve it.

We also have rooms available in a shared house on site. There is a monthly rent (currently $300), which includes all utilities and wifi.

If you are interested in the available positions, please email you resume and short cover email to farmers@kimbertoncsa.org

Thanks,
Andrew
