Free Spirit Farm

Free Spirit Farm is a 12 acre organic farm with mixed fruit and berry production in Winters, California. We will be going into our 18th season and are looking to hire starting around the beginning of June with a flexible ending date in September or October.

This would be a great place to learn about growing perennial crops as we have a vert diverse orchard of peaches, plums, pluots, apricots, figs, pomegranates, persimmons, apples, pears, cherries, and almost 2 acres of blackberries. Because it’s a small farm, a lot of the work will be harvesting, but there should still be plenty of opportunity to learn about all our systems/mechanization/general farm management/orchard care etc.

Duties: Harvesting, packing/sorting, fruit thinning, pruning, weeding, and more.

Hours: 40 hrs a week, working hours are usually 6am-2pm, depending on the time of year. Work will be available from the beginning of June until the end of October (we can be flexible).

Expectations: Motivated and hard worker, positive attitude, will be working with about 3-4 other people most days in a fun outdoor environment. Should be able to lift 50 pounds.

Pay: $20/HR (plus fruit).

(while your own transportation is not required, it is preferred)
