Hello from Frisky Girl Farm!
We are an eight acre, woman owned and operated vegetable and flower farm entering our fourth growing season. We have a 200 member CSA, sell to restaurants, attend one weekly farmers market and have a roadside farm stand. Though not certified organic we strive to farm in a way that is good for the planet and good for people. This means using cover crop, compost, crop rotation, and organic pest control methods to increase the sustainability of our farm.
We are looking for 2 enthusiastic, hard working folks to join our crew for the 2021 season! Farming can be a lot of hard work, but it is also incredibly rewarding. We are looking for people who are self-motivated, work well as part of a small team, have good problem solving skills and are able to adapt to changing situations. This job is very dynamic; in one day you might harvest and pack for our CSA, do seeding in the greenhouse, move irrigation sprinklers, and help with small construction projects. If you are interested in learning, working hard, and building a career in sustainable agriculture, then we want you!
