Employment Opportunity

We are seeking two energetic, hard working, reliable, physically fit and motivated individuals to work with us this season providing our CSA members and other clients with farm fresh organic vegetables. If you like working outside in all kinds of weather (yes, we work in the heat, rain, cold and wind), enjoy working with your hands, have a good sense of humor and don't mind getting dirty then you might just be who we are looking for. 

 You will often be lifting and moving bins of produce that could weigh up to fifty pounds so you will need to be physically fit. We work in a fast paced atmosphere as crops need to be harvested quickly to maintain a high level of quality. We grow over forty different types of crops so the work is always changing so I promise you'll never be bored. We need someone who can trouble shoot and think on their feet and who also has a keen attention to detail. 

No experience is necessary but a background or experience growing food would be an asset. Some of the duties you can expect will be transplanting, seeding in the greenhouse, weeding, harvesting, washing, weighing and preparing produce for our clients. 

Position #1 – 25-30 hours /week. Monday-Thursday. $12.00/hour
Position #2 – 14 hours/week. Monday& Wednesday. $12.00/hour
**There can be some flexibility in the hours between the two employees if need be**

These positions would start the end of June and finish the end of October. We also require extra help in the spring and later in the fall so an interested individual could start as early as the first of May but hours would be more flexible due to the nature of the work (ie transplanting). 

We are located in Wilmot Valley which is ten minutes east of Summerside and forty minutes west of Charlottetown. On top of the hourly wage we also provide free produce to our employees to take home and enjoy.

If you are interested in either position please contact us at
