Job Requirements

Experience Required:  Yes
Months of Experience Required:  3
Special Requirements:  Featherstone Farm engages in a unique form of direct to consumer produce distribution (1000+ member community supported agriculture (CSA) program), which requires of employees a knowledge and judgement level significantly above industry standards. This knowledge and judgement can only come from experience in the field and pack house. For example, employees will be required to pick cantaloupe within a narrow range of ripeness standards (unlike conventional melons which are picked and shipped green.) They will be required to pack highly perishable salad crops not in a conventional 24 count leaf lettuce box, but in boxes of mixed produce where they can easily be crushed or damaged. They will spend large amounts of time grading heirloom tomatoes for ripeness, cosmetic and structural defects and suitability for delivery to very high end customers. This skill alone can take weeks to develop, even for an employee who has months or even years of experience.
Number of Hours Per Week:  40
Work Schedule (Start/End time):  7:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.
