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 lead/crew position

We are seeking dedicated, flexible and passionate folks to join us in working hard to create a nourishing community offering.  Our farm produces a wide variety of vegetables/fruits, mushrooms and cut flowers for our CSA/Farmshare, online sales and to support the on-farm restaurant.
