What to Expect from Us

We will guide with decision making and prioritizing tasks, however expect to work independently most shifts. We are a small business, and the 2023 season is a very busy one as we prepare to welcome another baby, while building a house, operating a farm-to-table wedding catering business, as well as producing our line of Middle East Coast dips (Hummus, Tahini Dip, and Labneh)! We definitely need support on the farm that does not require a lot of our involvement.

Application Details and Deadline

We are an equal opportunity employer and welcome all qualified candidates to apply. If you are interested in this position, please submit your resume and a cover letter for consideration. Our interview process involves a phone interview, and then a three hour paid work session on the farm!

Deadline: ASAP! We are expecting a baby in July!
