Natural Collective CSA in Niverville, Manitoba is seeking a Farm Worker!
ABOUT Natural Collective CSA
We are a small market garden farming on 4.5 acres just south of Winnipeg, MB. We primarily grow vegetables, and have been slowing adding fruit, herbs, flowers and animals into our production. What we grow we sell through our CSA, farmers markets and through our local food hub who distributes produce to local restaurants. We are a low till farm, and do almost everything by hand. We do have a tractor and BCS which we use sparingly and mostly for mowing around the farm or shallow harrowing in the beds.
We grow everything using organic techniques and principles, however we are not certified. We aim to be regenerative where we can and are slowing adding animals into our production to ensure regeneration. We do not use plastic in our fields or when packaging out produce.
We are looking for someone who is hard working, can tolerate working in many different weather conditions and is physically able to lift upwards of 40lbs, stand or bend over for long periods of time. someone who is able to work well with our team but also someone who is self motivated and can problem solve when they are working on their own. Knowledge of market gardens and/or previous work experience with sustainable farming systems is an asset, but not a requirement.
