An ideal candidate possesses the following:
-An interest in vegetable and/or flower farming, or horticulture.
-Strong work ethic, self-motivated, and the ability to work independently.
-A quick learner who pays attention to detail.

We will acknowledge when we receive your application.
After we review your application, we may schedule a brief phone interview (15-20 minutes). We may then schedule a trial work session (one half-day) on our farm. The trial work session is an opportunity for us to evaluate each other while doing real work. It is the most important way we judge applicants, and the most important way for you to decide if this will be the job for you. We will pay you for the trial work you do here.
