Flower Field Crew

Website Longer Table Farm

Organic farm growing mixed vegetables and cut flowers

The Flower Field Crew will play a key role in growing the cut flower operation with the Flower Manager. Harvesting flowers for farmer’s markets and wholesale will be the most regular task throughout the season. Harvest speed and efficiency will be essential for success. The Flower Field Crew will also work on a variety of other physical tasks, such as maintaining flower fields (weeding, planting, etc.), making market bouquets and wreaths, washing and sanitizing harvest buckets, assisting the Vegetable Crew when needed, and working farmer’s markets on a rotating basis. The ideal candidate will have experience in both flower farming and floral design, though this is primarily a farming position. An individual who is passionate about growing flowers organically, can work fast while maintaining high quality standards, and has an eye for visual appeal will thrive in this position.

  • Multiple positions available
  • Full-time (35-45 hrs/week)
  • May-October $19/hr+ DOE

Experience & Qualifications:

  • One full season production flower farming experience very strongly preferred but other production farming or physical fast-paced work environment experience and desire to farm may be considered
  • Flexibility to work variable hours and occasional long days to get through large task lists during the height of the growing season
  • Ability to hustle and thrive under pressure
  • Ability to follow written and oral instructions, ask for help when needed, and accept constructive feedback
  • Ability to repeatedly lift 50 lbs, bend, kneel, and be standing for long hours
  • Ability to work outside in occasionally inclement weather
  • Previous floral design experience a plus
