At Cornell Farm, we have the greatest jobs ever: making the world a greener place by spreading our love of plants to our clients! During the holiday season, we bring in a miniature forest of sustainably grown fresh-cut Christmas Trees.

We’re looking for team players with a positive attitude who love helping people and the smell of fresh cut Christmas Trees.

This job will involve unloading, sorting, unwrapping, displaying, tagging, selling, cutting, installing the stand, and loading Christmas Trees onto customer’s cars.

A great candidate will be able to…

  • Work out doors in winter weather conditions including cold, wind, rain, and light snow.
  • Lift and carry 50+ pounds, and work with a team in loading trees on top of vehicles of all sizes.
  • Safely operate chainsaws around other people.
  • Clearly and quickly communicate in a fast-paced team environment.
  • Have open availability (including weekends) from November 16th through December 23rd.
  • Be able to wear a mask when working in retail areas (including outdoors) and around fellow employees, and follow all other COVID procedures.
  • Must be vaccinated against COVID-19

This is a seasonal position with a November 16th start date, with the possibility for longer term employment in the nursery. Applicants with long-term interest in working in the nursery and full time employment will be given priority, but part time applicants will still be considered.

Benefits include a 40% employee discount at the nursery and cafe and a positive working environment with a small family-owned business. Benefits applicable to full time employees after a 90+ day probationary period include 85% paid Kaiser healthcare, matched 401k contributions, and paid vacation.

To Apply: Please submit a cover letter explaining why you would be a good fit for the Cornell Farm Christmas Tree Team, and why we would be a good fit for you along with a resume.
