We’re looking for a farm worker who will assist with spring and summer mushroom production at the Northwood Mushrooms farm.
The work: Work can be very physical – primarily mushroom picking, but also force-fruiting, which includes log moving and skidsteer operation.
Hours: We’re looking for someone to help with farm work 40 to 50 hours per week starting at 7:30am or so, generally quitting around 4 or 5pm. Workers receive a day off each week, but are generally expected to work over the weekend, since that is our peak production time.
Duration: This position continues through the summer into October, but we have year-round work through the winter. We hope to find someone for this position who is interested to work through the winter and who will be able to move into the production lead position next year.
Compensation: hourly work at $11 to $13 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.
Selection Criteria: Previous general farm or production experience desirable, as well as speed, attention to detail, endurance, ability to work well with others and to lift 75 lbs. We hope to find someone who can step into the Production Lead position, which requires some mastery of the work, small team leadership, and the ability and initiative to troubleshoot problems like minor equipment repair.
Hiring deadline: We hope the production team member will start as soon as possible.
Application Details: Please email Jeremy at firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of why you’re interested in the position. He’d also like to see a resume and at least one professional and one personal reference.
Thanks for your interest in our production team member position!
