2018 Seasonal Help Wanted
Earth Haven Farm will be looking for farm help throughout the 2018 growing season running April through November.
We would like to outline 3 very different opportunities and experiences for you - see below
Intern Supervisor Wanted:
Full time position including accommodations, food and stipend.
We are looking for an energetic person or couple that would like to join our farm operation for the months of April through to November, or possibly a full year if interested.
We have a 40 foot trailer with a private bedroom with a double bed, a futon and bench in the living area.
Our farm operation is transitioning into an off-grid, sustainable living environment. We are looking for someone of like mind that is interested in a very back to basic lifestyle.
The interested person(s) should also have knowledge of (or a desire to learn about) cooking, fermenting, preserving and canning as you will be working in our kitchen to put away food for our own use as well as resale at farmers markets.
We are located north of Belleville in Eastern Ontario. There is no public transit available. Having your own transportation would be an asset. Extra income can be earned by taking on your own farmers market(s). We have the capacity to grow a lot of food.
This is a non-smoking farm. You must be legal to live and work in Canada. Have a valid Health Card. Good working references are required, preferably from previous farm work. Interview in person at our farm or by Skype is required.
You will be required to work 40 hours a week, however, weather permitting and circumstances around things that need to get done, this may be less some weeks and more others. That is the nature of farming. Picking days are Fridays and market days are Saturdays.
We pick seasonally to supply two farmers markets in Toronto (Evergreen Brickworks and The Village Market) plus our local CSA program. We also attend a number of other events and venues throughout the year to promote our farm.
