About Us

We grow 12 + acres of certified organic veggies on our 100acre farm. We aim to improve our local food system while inspiring our customers to explore the wonders of seasonal produce. We produce quality food for our summer, fall and winter vegetable shares (CSA), and our booths at the Ottawa Farmers' Market at Landsdowne Park and Westboro Farmers' Market at Byron Park. We currently have five farmers running our operation and are looking for capable, enthusiastic people to join our team.

Our team works together from seed to market to bring our customers high quality, sustainably grown organic vegetables. You will be part of the planting, harvesting, weeding and marketing, which means you will see customers satisfaction with the veggies that you helped grow! This is a very physically demanding job and we encourage fast paced work, but we also think that this is part of the fun!

Our fields are surrounded by the beautiful Gatineau hills. We share a cooked lunch every day. We are 2min from Gatineau park and 11km from Wakefield, a vibrant community with cozy cafes, restaurants and fun local bars. There is a growing community of small farmers in this area, which makes it a fun place to network and learn.

Requirements:

  • Physically Strong
  • Adaptable
  • Abilty to work quickly
  • Ability to work in extreme weather situations
  • Ability to maintain pace
  • Enthusiastic and positive attitude
  • Ability to work with people

Previous farm experience is preferred, but we will consider candidates with experience in physical work, like tree-planting or landscaping.

Bilingualism is an asset

Tasks

Assist with planting, weeding, irrigating, harvesting, packing and pest management. May also be asked to work an occasional market.

Wage

$13.10/hour. We work an average of 42h/week. You will get paid for all hours worked. You will be provided with a contract outlining expectations and remuneration.

Extras

Vegetables are free. Shared apartment (private rooms) is available on farm, negligible rent. Wakefield and Sainte-Cecile-de-Masham are close by, where you may rent rooms/apartments.

We share lunches everyday. Employees contribute to an employee-managed grocery fund.

As this is a paid position, we do not offer official education, but on farm learning is inevitable and we have five experienced farmers to learn from. You can learn about best harvest and postharvest handling practices, crop-planning, pest management, fertility and irrigation methods and more

We do like to keep employees on board from year to year, if all parties feel comfortable, so long term employment is a possibility.
