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 during the week.
Duration: This position runs from April through October. We have year-round work through the winter, and we prefer to hire for those more limited positions from our summer team.
Compensation: Pay is either $12 per hour plus housing (if you live on the farm) or $15 per hour (if you live off the farm). Free mushrooms and discounts on other farm products are also available. Living on the farm includes a private room, all utilities, plus internet, and use of the farm house kitchen.
The Team: Summer teams are two or three full-time production and packing employees and interns.
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 will hire for this position when we find the right person, ideally by the end of April.
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!
