Position descriptions can be found on our website: http://sognvalleyfarm.com/employment/
Educational Opportunities: Crew members will have the opportunity to obtain hands-on farming skills and learn about some of the scientific/ecological underpinnings of sustainable agriculture. We encourage our employees to be inquisitive as they work to ensure they understand not just the "what" but the "why"
Skills Desired: Prior vegetable farming experience is desirable but not required. We are looking for hard-working folks with good attitudes who are eager to learn.
Meals: Meals are on your own, but vegetables from the farm are provided.
Stipend: $10-12/hr, commensurate with experience
Housing: We have housing available in two locations. The first is our crew house located a 10-minute drive from the farm in nearby Dennison, MN. At the time of posting, we expect to have two bedrooms available in the house. We offer this at an affordable rent of $200/month. Occupants share the costs of utilities (electricity, water/sewer/trash, and propane for heat and cooking), but the farm provides high-speed internet. We also have one of our three on-farm cabins available, with access to a full-featured semi-outdoor kitchen with electricity, running water, and wireless internet access. There is an outhouse adjacent to the employee kitchen, but indoor bathroom, shower, and laundry facilities are also available in the farmhouse, with direct access from outside. Rent for this option is $75/month.
