Hours and Work Season
Full and part-time
Working at Two Toad Farm means you become a team member learning first-hand how to produce a diverse variety of healthy foods in a production environment focused on continually improving efficiency. Crew members, depending on skill level, will be involved in all parts of the farm operation, including seedling production, soil prep and management, planting, mulching, weeding, cultivating, harvesting, staking, pruning, irrigation setup, washing and packing, storing, as well as marketing and sales. This is a great opportunity for someone interested in growing food, starting their own farm, or managing a farm in the future to learn the ways and means of making a small farm function. Ideal candidates will be available the entire growing season, have prior commercial farming experience, landscaping experience, or a work history in a trade that includes hard physical labor and use of hand tools. Consideration will be given to passionate gardeners or those who are truly motivated to learn. A mature, committed couple with off grid living experience could be a great fit. Full- and part-time farm crew and or farm stand positions are available from April through November. We aim for a six-day work week for full-time employees, with exact schedules varying with the season and dependent upon interests and responsibilities taken on at the farm. We offer flexible compensation based on commitment and experience.
Candidates should possess the following skills:
Ability to lift 50 pounds.
Ability to work on their feet, knees, and/or bent over at least 8 hours a day, in hot, cold, and wet weather.
Ability to work in a fast-paced, production-oriented environment, make sound decisions under pressure, solve problems creatively and effectively, and be quality- and detail-oriented in their work.
Be an enthusiastic learner, an effective communicator, able to follow directions, flexible in mindset, a team player, and able to ask questions when uncertain.
Be able to work efficiently and effectively both independently and in a group.
Possess a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation.
In general, a positive attitude, a good work ethic, and a passion for producing food are the most important qualities you can possess.
