It is back to winter on the farm. We have been waiting for the soil to dry which is difficult when it is frozen underneath. Usually we have started planting by now. This is not a usual year it seems. stew

On Friday I had the opportunity to visit Lighthouse Gardens in Lima for an organic greenhouse growing workshop. Pictured is a roll up tunnel inside the greenhouse for germinating seeds. There is always something new to learn. stew

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.

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. Housing is available locally.
