Work with us!
Do you want to join a team of people committed to growing and preparing fresh, sustainably grown food?
We are located at The Plant in Pittsboro and are accepting applications and interviewing for a farm crew position. If desired, employees will have the option to work both on the farm and in the kitchen, giving everyone the opportunity to both grow and see the food prepared.
We are seeking dedicated, flexible and passionate folks working hard to create a nourishing community offering. Our farm is Certified Naturally Grown producing a wide variety of vegetables/fruits, mushrooms and cut flowers for our CSA/Farmshare, online sales and to support the on-farm restaurant.
Farming is physically demanding, dirty, and challenging. We are seeking a team member who understands that, embraces that and works as a team to produce excellent results. During this pandemic, we do end up working alone and separately more than usual.
Farm Crew Member- 1 full time position (30-40 hrs/wk)
Work alongside managers and crew in all aspects of farm operations including greenhouse production, field work from seeding/transplanting through cultivation, harvest, post-harvest and packing.
Ability and willingness to work at farmers market or CSA pick up as needed (this could include weekends & evenings)
Clean driving record
Ability to work hard (even in less than ideal conditions) and maintain a good sense of communication and humor
Ability to take and follow direction in detail
Ability and willingness to work with speed and accuracy
Willingness to work at least one day in the kitchen (customer facing) a plus
Confidence to work unsupervised once trained but also the wisdom to know when to ask questions
If you are inspired to join our team, please submit the following to :
1. A note explaining why you want to be a part of this farm and kitchen (this is a package deal, we are looking for folks excited about the whole experience we have created and who are willing to work in either setting as needed BUT this position is primarily a farm position.)
2. Your resume
3. Previous employer contact info (we will only reach out if both parties decide it’s a good fit)
I look forward to meeting you!
