2018 Employment opportunities
We are beginning to consider candidates for full-time field hand positions for the 2018 growing season. We will be hiring workers with at least one year of commercial farming experience to begin in May and work 40 hours a week through September. Please see below for a more detailed job description.
Full Time: 40 hours a week, May - September
Assistance with all daily farm activities including (but not limited to) seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, setting up irrigation, washing and packing vegetables, tractor work, CSA preparation, and farmers’ market shifts. Time will be spent in the greenhouse, in the field and at farmers' markets. Work is fast-paced and physically demanding.
Candidates must have at least one year of farming experience on a commercial farm. The ideal candidate is interested in farming as a career and wants to learn what it takes to run their own farm. Must be able to lift 50lbs. and be on their feet for 6 hours straight. We are looking for someone with a strong work ethic and a positive attitude, excellent listening and communication skills, and ability to work with efficiency in a team setting. We do not offer housing so reliable transportation to and from the farm is necessary (we are located 20 minutes from downtown Portland).
Work Environment & Schedule:
The job will be 8 hours a day, 5 days a week with a one hour unpaid lunch break. Start times are early on harvest days (6am), and we work in all weather conditions. Bumbleroot's daily field operations are managed by three of Bumbleroot's owners with whom you will work closely.
To apply for a field hand position for 2018, please email email@example.com with your resume and a cover letter explaining why you'd like to join the Bumbleroot team.
