Posted on: 01/29/2018 12:33 pm
River Run Farm is a Certified Organic vegetable farm on the beautiful Dungeness River near Sequim, WA. We retail produce at farmers markets, and wholesale to regional grocers and distributors. We are currently hiring part-time and full-time Field Crew. Positions have flexible start dates in May and variable end dates between late-October and mid-November. Experience in field scale production agriculture is strongly preferred, but not required.
Field Crew members will participate in most aspects of field scale vegetable production. Tasks will include: soil mixing, seeding, hoop house watering, transplanting, hoeing, hand weeding/thinning, harvesting, sorting, washing, packing and storing. All tasks involve duration and repetition outdoors, occasionally in inclement weather. Applicants should be relaxed in a positive attitude towards hard work and readily display the ability to successfully engage with instruction and feedback. Saturdays at Farmers Market will be a regular feature of full-time positions and will require a valid drivers’ license.
Compensation for full-time and part-time work starts at $11.50/hour and includes fresh organic produce. Multiple season opportunity exists, including lead / management roles.
The season upon us is a fantastic opportunity to cultivate friendship, manifest vision, and achieve goals. All the while feeding people and stewarding land and water. If you are excited to join us, we would love to hear from you!
To apply, and with any questions, please email James at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications should include:
-A letter of introduction and interest, including a description of relevant skills and experience
