Now Hiring Farm Crew Members for the 2019 growing season 

 

Work at Woven Roots Farm is diverse and often includes greenhouse production, soil preparation, field crop

planting, weeding, maintaining, and harvesting.  Employees are often called upon to do different 

 jobs in all kinds of weather. This position will require some hard physical labor.

 

Farming is production work. The farm earns money by what is actually produced and sold. Since production per

hour or day is very important, employees are expected to work quickly and efficiently, to be able to lift 50 lbs,

to keep up with the pace set by the employers or work efficiently on their own. Producing food is a team effort.

We count on each other and must earn each other’s respect and trust. Employees should hold each other

accountable for their work. Employees are also encouraged to figure out how to do things better and to make observations, to innovate and to discuss these possibilities.
