‘Jester’ lettuce heads

Join our team! We have an opening for a part time Harvest Crew member

Harvest days are busy picking, cutting, washing, sorting, and grading. Attention to detail is important. Outside of harvesting, 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. Various other jobs might include unloading trucks, weedwacking, hand watering or delivering into town. And then there’s always more hoeing.
