Position Title
Full/Part time Field Crew positions for 2017 still available
Position Description
If you enjoy physical labor and the outdoors and want to be a part of growing healthy food for people, this may be the job for you! We prefer applicants with vegetable farming experience but if you have stamina, and bring enthusiasm and a positive attitude to your work, we’ll give you a try!

We are located in the Enchanted Mountains of Western NY, 50 miles south of Buffalo in Otto. Native Offerings Farm CSA provides 400 members with a 10 month mixed certified organic vegetable share and a seasonal locally grown fruit share. This is our 20th season for our CSA! We sell grass fed beef and naturally raised pork by the side and are in the process of developing a “freezer box” trade. We have four distribution points for members to pick up their shares in Buffalo and the surrounding areas.

The primary responsibility for the field crew is to be quick and effective cultivators and harvesters. The field crew duties include but are not limited to: greenhouse work (seeding, thinning, transplanting), field work (cultivating, mowing, insect and disease scouting and management, harvesting) and processing work (washing, packing and labeling produce)

This is typically a full time seasonal position (April through Thanksgiving) but we do have part time positions that are available! Pay is based on the performance and experience of the candidate ($9.70-$12.00hr). Fruit and vegetable shares provided. During the peak season (May though Thanksgiving) the work-week is Monday through Friday for ten hours a day. Health insurance is provided the second year of employment. Couples welcome.
