Farm Worker, Riverhill Farm, Nevada City

Riverhill Farm has an immediate opening for a farmworker with a minimum of one full season's experience (preference for two years) on a diversified commercial vegetable farm.

Riverhill Farm is located three miles from Nevada City, California and sells a mix of fruits and vegetables at area Farmers' Markets, at the farm's farmstand, to restaurants and to our local natural foods co-op, BriarPatch. It's a beautiful and natural place for a farm, and we're located at the end of a dead end road (it's quiet!). We pride ourselves on our relationship to our community and on the quality of our produce. You can find more information about our farm on our website at http://www.riverhillfarm.com and our Facebook page, where you can see photos of our operation.

The preferred applicant will have enough experience to be able to join in efficiently and with commitment to our ongoing operation and be as good with customers as he/she is in the fields. We are a small crew working closely together. Must be willing to commit to the duration of the full season (April 1 - end of November).
 
We pay regular wages (not a stipend position) and provide housing if desired. Applicants should email alan@riverhillfarm.com with a letter of interest, a full description of your background and experience in farming, and a resume with at least two relevant references. All qualified applicants will receive a reply. A farm visit is required prior to an offer of employment.
