We’re looking for a farm worker who will assist with our late winter and early spring production work.
The work: Work starts with logging and inoculations through the winter and spring, then shifts into production season preparations and construction projects. Much of the work includes moving logs and operating our new pneumatic inoculator tool. Summer work is focused on mushroom picking and log moving.
Hours: We’re looking for someone to help with farm work part-time starting at 8am, generally quitting around 5pm. Work will become full time (40 to 50 hours/week) in the summer.
Duration: This work is a lead-in to one of our summer positions – which start in June: production team member, production lead, or mushroom picker/packer (see other posts).
Compensation: hourly work at $11 to $12 per hour. There may be an opportunity during the summer for a promotion to production lead, with a pay raise. Housing is available free of charge in our farmhouse; there is a shared bathroom and kitchen in the farmhouse. All farmhands have use of kitchen equipment and of course mushrooms!
The Team: Our pared-down winter team is just winter farm worker and farm-founder Jeremy McAdams, while – our summer team is up to a few full-time 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.
