The roots were piled high at the Elmwood Bidwell Farmers market on Saturday. At the end of the day they were all gone. The Double Up Food Bucks program is bringing many new customers to the market. If you spend twenty dollars with your SNAP benefit card you get a bonus 20 for fresh vegetables and fruit.

Field Crew

Our shares have sold out for the last six years. We need a hard working crew so we can grow and meet the demand for our shares. The primary responsibility for the field crew is to be quick and effective cultivators and harvesters. Most of the day will be spent weeding, harvesting, washing and packing vegetables. Some general farm work is involved. We harvest most of the crops the day they are distributed so it is essential that the harvest is finished quickly so that the truck can leave on time.

This is a full time seasonal position (April through Thanksgiving). Pay is based on the performance and experience of the candidate ($7.50-$12.00hr). During the peak season (May though Thanksgiving) the work-week is Monday through Friday for ten hours a day. Benefits: Profit sharing and 401K. Housing is available locally.
