Ol’ MacDonald Farm in Duncan, BC is looking for a Market Garden Farm Hand for the 2020 season! 

ABOUT Ol’ Macdonald Farm

We are a very small family farm on two quiet sites close to town. We use hand tools only and sell almost exclusively at the Saturday market. We sell non-certified organic vegetables and free range eggs.

Though not certified we do follow organic practices most of the time. We also observe permaculture principles and employ them when possible. We think farming should be fun, not drudgery, and always strive for a good work/leisure balance.

Desired Qualities

We are looking for somebody who can accept direction easily, work quickly once they have learned a skill and work independently. Taking initiative and not being afraid to offer suggestions is also a valued skill.
