This is a distribution week. We will be at Orchard Park today, at the farm on Wednesday and in Buffalo on Thursday. We will make a decision about Williamsville tomorrow. It seems that there is a storm on its way which might dump up to 12 inches of snow. stew
The sun is out. The snow is melting and the spinach is up. When it gets cold again the black temperature probe will make sure the seedlings stay warm on the hot water bench. stew

2013 Employment Positions
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. Health insurance is provided the second year of employment. Housing is available locally.
The candidate must possess the stamina to work long hours, a positive attitude and enjoy working with others. Vegetable farming experience is preferred.
