Farm Crew Member

Website Little Saint Farm

Little Saint Farm in Healdsburg, California is seeking multiple full-time Crew Members to join our team for a year-round position. Our new team members will be involved in all aspects of our farm, including, but not limited to: seeding and nursery work, field prep, transplanting, weeding, harvesting of vegetable and flower crops, and light construction and irrigation projects.

Compensation is $20 per hour. Full-time staff will receive health insurance after two months of employment.

About Us:

Little Saint Farm is a young ecologically-beneficial vegetable and cut flower farm in Healdsburg, CA. We are linked to a local restaurant that will be opening this month, and will be one of their primary produce and flower suppliers. We are also launching our CSA program this summer.

Started in the fall of 2020, we are converting about three acres of what was previously vineyard into a diversity of annual vegetables, cut flowers, perennial crops, and beneficial perennial hedgerows. We use minimal tillage (only occasionally power-harrowing compacted soil) and are committed to implementing practices to improve our soil quality.

This is a great opportunity to be a part of a farm start-up and become involved in every aspect of farming from the ground up. In 2022 and beyond, we are building our hoop houses, installing irrigation and drip systems, planting perennials, building out nursery spaces and wash stations, shaping our annual beds, working on landscaping projects, and more.

Qualifications:

Our ideal candidate is enthusiastic and reliable, a good problem solver, an effective communicator, capable of working well alone or in a group, a fast learner, able to move from one task to another with ease, and able to work in the heat! They must be comfortable working and existing in a queer-friendly space.

Previous farm experience is preferred, but not required.

You must be able to lift 50 pounds and be on your feet all day. We do our best to take care of our bodies, yet this is a physically demanding position. There will be days that consist mostly of monotonous physical tasks like spreading compost and clearing beds.

You must be eligible to work in the US, and have a valid driver’s license. Ability for an in-person interview is strongly preferred. No local housing is offered.

People of any gender, race, sexual orientation or religion are encouraged to apply.

To apply, please send a resume with two professional references and a cover letter describing your interest in food and farming to our general manager: samantha@littlesaintfarm.com

We look forward to hearing from you!
