Organic Farm Employment Opportunity in the Capay Valley

We have a 10 acre diversified organic farm in the Capay Valley, and we are looking to build up our summer crew. Our farm is located approximately 50 minutes from Davis, accessible by car or by public transportation.
We are seeking to fill 2 part time positions for mid-late May through August/September ( could also be 1 full time position). Ideally we are looking for someone with at least 1 year of experience, but we are willing to train an enthusiastic novice..This is not a farmers market sales position.
 Housing is available ( solar powered cabin with outdoor kitchen and shower on our property) for part time employees who want to stay for a few days a week and then go back to Davis, food from the farm readily available, peace and quiet of living in the country and community meals. We offer an hourly wage depending on experience, starting at $12/hour and up. Monthly bonuses too!
We are primarily seeking help on harvest days: ThursdayFriday and Saturday, but we can accommodate other schedules. We need a reliable/consistent schedule for the summer though.
There are plenty of opportunities for training and skills development. Additional opportunities include help with value added products on occasion and/or development/recipe testing of medicinal herb products. There are other organic farms in the area if you are interested in animal husbandry or poultry, sheep, etc.
Please check out our website, Facebook page gauchitohillfarm and Instagram # gauchitohillfarm  to get a sense of what we do. 
If you are interested, please email me
We are a small farm, we work very hard at what we do.  Above all, we are looking for someone reliable, a good sense of humor, a love for the land, and an enthusiastic spirit!
