‘Jester’ lettuce heads

Join our team! We have an opening for a full time Crew Member

We’re a small farm, so each person gets to be involved in many different tasks. Among the many jobs there is seeding, transplanting, thinning, staking, hoeing & hand weeding. We use drip irrigation almost exclusively so we spend a good bit of time with drip tape, risers and headers. Harvest days are busy picking, cutting, washing, sorting, and grading. Attention to detail IS important. Various other jobs might include unloading trucks, weedwacking, hand watering or delivering into town. And then there’s always more hoeing.
