Ratto Farms is looking for people who are interested in learning about farming and production on a small family organic culinary herb farm in Aurora, Oregon. The Farm does all aspects of farming from planting seeds to packaging product for sale. Most of our crops are grown under cover in greenhouses and high tunnels. We are looking for people who are motivated to learn and work hard with all aspects of our farming operation. The positions are full-time or part-time seasonal work (May through October) with a potential, for the right candidate, to become year-round work.
Tasks are often repetitive and tedious with conditions that can be hot and sweaty or cold and wet. Typical duties include harvesting, washing, weighing, packaging, labeling, cleaning harvest and delivery totes, cleaning work areas, starting seeds for transplants, plant bed preparation, planting, watering/irrigation, mowing and weeding. These positions are hands-on working experiences that often require good problem-solving skills and taking initiative.
Job Candidate Expectations
Hours vary depending on the day’s order and candidate’s desire for full or part-time work. Harvest days begin at 7:00 am and usually end between 1:00-4:00 pm. Part-time and full-time candidates must be able to work at least Sunday, Wednesday and Friday. Full-time candidates will work two additional days/week. We will try to accommodate any special days off requested in advance.
