Sun Love Farm
Position- Farm Worker/Market Vendor/Delivery Driver (regular part- time, average of 20-32 hours/ week, July-October. Possibility of expanded hours in August and September)
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. All the produce is certified- naturally grown- grown beyond organic standards with sustainability and the health of the earth in mind. We have a CSA program that delivers directly to people’s homes, and we attend 2 farmers markets- Oregon City and Milwaukie. We also sell to a local food co-op, organizations, and a couple restaurants.
The owner of the farm is expecting a second child in August, so this position is primarily a maternity leave position. We also have one full time farm manager, and another part time farm worker.
Due to Covid19, we follow social distancing at the farm as much as possible and require frequent hand washing, sanitizing, and mask wearing when working in close quarters. As an expectant mother, I am trying to be extra aware of health and not contracting Covid19. Any potential employee is expected to follow these standards.
The regular hours of this position will start in July (likely 20 hrs/week). They may pick up to 32 hours a week in August and September, and go down to 16-24 hrs/wk in October. There may be irregular hours available immediately as well.
Work typically starts 7-8am, and finishes 4-5 pm.
Days that will be required in July include Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday.
August-September Tuesday will be added.
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 from July-October will be 1 day a week of CSA delivery (you must be able to drive a standard vehicle, and be willing to drive a small trailer), harvesting and packing high quality produce, and working the Saturday Oregon City Farmer’s Market as a vendor. Other work may include weeding, transplanting, weeding, weedwacking, and other farm tasks.
