Time to get to work!
NOW HIRING for the 2023 season! We are 6-acre small-scale farm using organic practices (certified naturally grown) to grow produce and flowers. We also raise chickens. We are close to Milwaukee and surrounding suburbs, which is exciting because we really do live in the community we serve. As a result, we try to be accessible and inclusive to all. This is our fourth year farming. We are a partner (husband/wife) team, looking to grow and learn. If you’d like to try out farming, or are looking to do something different, please get in touch!
This farm crew position entails everything under the sun. You’ll do field maintenance such as prepping beds, planting and weeding. For our CSA, you’d help with harvesting, packing, and washing. Chickens will also need a hand with feeding and maintaining their water. Never a dull day and lots of activities to choose from. If there’s anything specific you enjoy, let us know, we want this to be a great experience.
Start and End Dates (flexible) / 2 days a week
End: end of October
