Part-time Position at the Cloverleaf Farm!

Part-time job available at the Cloverleaf Farm, a 4.5 acre organic fruit farm located between Davis and Dixon. We have two current farm partners - Katie Fyhrie and Emma Torbert - and are looking for one more person to join the team. The position will be 10 hours per week until May and 20-30 hours per week from May until September (potentially more if desired) at $12/hr. We are looking for someone that is interested in farming as a career and potentially becoming a partner in the Cloverleaf Farm at the end of the farming season. The work will consist of fruit tree care (thinning, pruning), fruit picking, packing, and delivery, row crop planting and cultivation, and fruit preservation (jams, fruit leathers).  
The Cloverleaf’s goal is to grow excellent fruit while improving our soil and the environment. We believe in treating ourselves and our customers with care. The Cloverleaf Farm hopes to develop innovative farming ideas, foster creativity and provide an educational forum for the community. The farm aims to use new markets to integrate the farm into the local food system. The Cloverleaf's vision is to create an orchard burgeoning with an ecosystem of insects, animals and soil microorganisms in order to reduce water, energy and external inputs and we would like your help! Anybody interested in the position please contact Emma and Katie at thecloverleaffarm@gmail.com.
