Farm Field Crew – Certified Organic

Website Burns Blossom Farm

Certified Organic no-till market farm in Chico, CA.

MAY-NOVEMBER (potential to start earlier) starting at $16.50/hour D.O.E., + end-of-season bonus.

30-40 hours/week with 30 minute lunch, Tuesdays-Fridays and occasional Mondays and/or Saturdays. Must be reliable and dedicated to the full farming season.

 

As a valued member of our FARM CREW, you will be immersed in a diverse set of responsibilities spanning both the wash station and fields. Your key field duties will encompass essential production tasks such as mulching, harvesting, trellising, weeding, and seeding. Your hands-on involvement extends to washing, packing, and bagging produce, ensuring the quality and presentation meet our high standards. Additionally, you’ll have the ability to contribute to the marketing efforts at farmers markets, events and farm stands, showcasing our produce to the community.

This role is a physically demanding all-weather outdoor position, often requiring intense and taxing efforts on both the body and mind. Expect to be actively engaged throughout each day, as our intensive farming approach allows us to yield exceptionally high quantities of vegetables per acre! Our methods are more physically demanding than other farming styles, but offer ample opportunities for both enjoyment and learning.

This position offers the potential for year-round employment, providing a unique opportunity for continuous involvement and personal growth within the dynamic environment of our farm operation. Join us as we cultivate not just crops but also a collaborative and thriving community committed to growing.

 

ABOUT BURNS BLOSSOM FARM:

BURNS BLOSSOM FARM is certified by the REAL ORGANIC PROJECT and C.C.O.F. & U.S.D.A. Owned and operated by Mel & Kyle Forrest Burns, formerly of Nye Ranch Farm, our diversified market farm spans two distinct locations just 2 miles apart. We take pride in growing quality crops, from seed to community.

Our urban farm is nestled in the cute Barber neighborhood, a mere stone’s throw from Downtown Chico and the expansive Bidwell Park. This farm is dedicated to intense vegetable production resulting in an immense amount of produce grown year-round, with a focus on diverse market vegetables on 3/4 acre of land.

In addition, our second location we purchased in September of 2023 lies just beyond city limits, maintaining a close proximity to CSU Chico campus. This larger farm affords us the opportunity to cultivate certain crops at scale, with a special focus on garlic, berries and tomatoes. It serves as a dynamic space for experimentation, where we delve into innovative practices like grown in situ mulch, cover cropping, occultation, and the ongoing refinement of our no-till methods on 4 acres of land.
