WHAT MAKES WORKING AT WELCOME TABLE so GREAT?
We farm as a team. Everyone has areas of individual responsibility. We come together for weekly farm walks, check-ins, farm lunches, and group projects. We eat really good food. Daily tasks are varied. Weekly routines provide stability. All farmers get to take time off in the summer. The 5-day work week is standard. We practice kind, direct communication. We appreciate problem solving, capability, and positive attitudes. We play towards individual strengths. We have dogs and cats and horses and pigs and kids on the farm. There is a great swimming hole on site. We are located close to town and community. We take pride in our work.
