We work outdoors all year, winter and summer, so be prepared for that. During the winter, workdays are Monday to Friday with weekends off; during the summer there is one day off a week which is mid-week.

Hours: Work is full-time and generally 5 days a week, 40 to 50 hours per week starting at 7:30am or so, generally quitting around 4 or 5pm.  You may be expected to work at least one day each weekend, especially in the summer.

Compensation: Pay is $18 to $20 per hour, less if you live on the farm. Free mushrooms and discounts on other farm products are also available. Living on the farm includes a private room, all utilities, plus internet, and use of the farm house kitchen.

The Team: Summer teams are two or three full-time production and packing employees and interns.

Hiring deadline: We will hire for this position when we find the right person, ideally by the end of April.
