Farmhands: 2 full time positions available starting May 1st, 2017
Gentle Giant Farm is a certified organic vegetable farm located in Middlefield, CT. We sell produce via a CSA, farmers markets, and wholesale accounts.
We are looking for reliable farmhands who work hard and do not complain. You should be a trustworthy individual, committed to our work and to our values, who is easy to get along with but professional. Farming is physically demanding and multi-faceted, and these should also be considerations. Previous farm experience is welcomed but not required - the right candidate can be trained. You will be exposed to potentially all aspects of organic farming including but not limited to: cultivation, transplanting, seedlings, setting up and maintaining irrigation, weed and pest control, fertilizing, harvesting, handling, trellising, packaging and sales.
We work early and long days that are hard but satisfying.
Pay starts at $10.10/hr, plus an end-of-season bonus and a weekly share of vegetables.
Monday - Friday 7:00am - 5:00pm
30 minute break for breakfast and one hour for lunch.
A trial work period will precede hiring.
