Full Cellar Farm

Farmworker Job Description

Full Cellar Farm is currently hiring one farmworker for approximately 30-40 hours a week for the 2019 season. This is a seasonal position, running from the beginning of April through mid-November. Pay ranges from $13 to $15 per hour, depending on experience.

About the Farm

Full Cellar Farm started in 2014, offering bulk preserving and storage crop shares. In 2015, we added our weekly vegetable CSA. Since then, we have steadily increased our membership, and plan to sell 140 shares in 2019. Community Supported Agriculture is our passion and provides almost all of our income. Our CSA focuses on smaller, more manageable share sizes and allows members to choose which vegetables they get in their box each week. We farm on 4 acres outside of Gresham, which we lease from the East Multnomah Soil and Water Conservation District. We use sustainable growing methods to improve the health of the soil, water, and ecosystem.

Position Description

This is a seasonal, 30- to 40-hour-a-week position. (Hours will be lower early and late in the season, but will increase to full-time at the peak of the season.) The season runs from the beginning of April through mid-November, with the possibility of a longer-term position if we're a good match. The farmworker will participate in most aspects of the farm work, including seeding, transplanting, irrigation, weeding, harvesting, and packing CSA boxes. They will frequently be working alongside the owner and/or fellow crew member to complete tasks. Strong work ethic, good physical fitness, attention to detail, and a positive attitude will contribute to a successful farm season.

Position Requirements

  • Physical fitness and strength, including the ability to lift 50 lbs. frequently throughout the day and engage in repetitive physical tasks
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team to get work done as quickly and efficiently as possible
  • Good attention to detail
  • Ability to make decisions and be self-directed when needed
  • Emotional maturity and respect for self and others
  • Reliable transportation to the farm
  • Availability for the entire farm season (beginning of April through mid-November).

We want to support more diversity in the small farm world! Prior experience is preferred, but we encourage anyone with a strong work ethic and an eagerness to learn to apply.
