Part-Time Crew Member

POSITION DESCRIPTION: 

Raleigh’s Hillside Farm is seeking two additional skilled, part-time crew members to join our team, and assist us in a successful seventh growing season by providing a great work ethic, positive attitude, and strong dedication to our mission.  We are a growing CSA farm enthusiastic about providing our members with extremely high-quality produce, lots of flexibility, and incredible culinary resources.

Crew members will be involved in all aspects of the farm’s production including seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, washing, packing CSA boxes, and any other farm maintenance needed while keeping a clean and organized working environment.

Throughout the season, crew members will work closely with both farm owners and have ample opportunity for an in-depth look at organic farming processes especially when it comes to CSA production. This is a great experience for anyone looking to start their own vegetable farm one day.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Reliable, responsible, and self-motivated individual with an ability to take charge when needed.

  • Someone eager to work efficiently in all types of weather and enjoys intense, physical activity.

  • Fast, hands-on learner who takes instruction well, is not afraid to ask questions, and quickly applies lessons learned to their work. 

  • Energetic person who understands deadlines and shows up on time with a positive attitude.

  • Active communicator who enjoys being part of a team, but is also comfortable working alone on projects.  

  • Individual with strong attention to detail, thorough observation skills, and ability to maintain consistent sizing standards.

  • Ability to lift 50 pounds is required.

  • Reliable transportation to the farm is also required.

  • Previous farming experience through preferred, is not required.

POSITION DETAILS:

  • Crew member season begins April 15-29th (based on the weather) and runs through late October.

  • Crew work days are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays. We have some flexibility in scheduling, but Tuesdays and Wednesdays are required.

  • Applicants may apply for 2, 3 or 4 days per week. Please state preference in cover letter.

  • Pay starts at $10-12/hour based on experience with opportunity for multiple raises per season based on work ethic and efficiency. Other benefits include work gear stipend in the spring and access to surplus organic produce every week.

Worker Share Positions

All worker shares must commit to at least three hours per week at a regularly scheduled time. Missing one or two weeks for vacation is no problem at all but generally we ask worker shares work consistent “shifts.” Small shares need to earn a total of 60 hours throughout the season. Large shares need to earn a total of 100 hours throughout the season.

Spring Worker Share

April, May and June are a crazy time of year at Raleigh’s Hillside Farm. We are looking for someone interested in getting all their worker share hours in during these three months (so working 6-15 hours per week for 7-10 weeks). The schedule might be a little erratic due to the weather but you will be an essential part of our farm team, helping us seed and transplant the majority of our crops for the 2019 season. This is a physically demanding time of year so we will require in-person working interviews for this position.

CSA Pack SHED Worker Share

We are seeking 2-3 worker shares to join our team for 3-5 hour shifts on Tuesdays during our CSA season (June 12th-October 9th) to help us bag, weigh and wash produce for our CSA. These invaluable worker shares will work quickly and efficiently from our newly built pack shed. It is a great task for those who are a bit nervous about the physical demands of farming but are excited about being a part of our most exciting and busy work day. On rare occasions, you may also get to help with harvesting, weeding, or transplanting in the field.

general worker share

Interested in working at our farm in some other capacity than listed above? We have room for 2-3 more worker shares to help throughout the season in a myriad of tasks (harvesting, transplanting, laying fabric or row cover, putting up or taking down trellises, washing, packing, etc). If you have consistent availability for 3-10 hours on Monday, Wednesday or Thursday between the hours of 9-5 p.m. during the months of June-October, please reach out and we’ll try to find an arrangement that works for all of us!
