Sun Love Farm is a small mixed vegetable farm in Oregon City, OR (about 30 minutes from downtown Portland) We grow about 2 acres of vegetables on a 7 acre farm. ½ an acre or so of our veggies are grown on land in Damascus, OR as well. The produce is Certified- Naturally Grown- grown beyond organic standards with sustainability and the health of the earth in mind. We have a 60 member CSA program that delivers directly to people’s homes, a 40 member Market Share program, and we attend 2 farmers markets- Oregon City and Milwaukie
The regular hours of this position will start in mid March. Work can be weather dependent in March, and it is possible that we might have some shorter part time weeks if the rain does not allow the soil to be dry enough to work.
Work typically starts 7-8am, and finishes 4-5 pm.
In a nutshell, I am looking for someone with at least 1 season of farm experience, although people who have no farm experience, but are motivated to learn and hard working can also apply. The primary tasks of this job are all the ins and outs of growing produce on a small scale. Planting and seeding in the spring, weeding with hand tools, harvesting, irrigation, mowing, weedwacking, washing produce, packing shares, and more. Keep in mind that farming is a challenging physical job. We are primarily hiring for a farm worker, but there may also be opportunities for working farmer’s markets if the candidate has interest. We are a small crew here- you will primarily be working beside the owner and the farm manager.
