Compensation: hourly work at $12 per hour. Housing is available free of charge in our farmhouse or in our bunkhouse; there is a shared bathroom and kitchen in the farmhouse. All farmhands have use of kitchen equipment and a few food staples like oil and salt, and of course mushrooms!
The Team: Summer teams are two or three full employees
Work Location: We have a beautiful 38 acre farm at 827 15th St., Clayton, WI 54004, about an hour and a half from the Twin Cities.
