Northbrook Farm in Saanichton, BC is seeking Field Crew!
ABOUT Northbrook Farm
Northbrook Farm began in 2000. Heather Stretch (with occasional assistance from her husband and sons) owns and runs this 7-acre certified organic mixed veggie and blueberry farm. Northbrook is a bustling farm situated within a 20-acre property where other businesses also operate. We are part of the Saanich Organics group of farms (www.saanichorganics.com). We sell through our CSA, at 2 farmers markets, to many local restaurants and grocers, and at our farm stand.
We are a Certified Organic farm. We want to be part of the solution to build a better food system that is both environmentally and financially sustainable.
Northbrook Farm is looking for farm hands to join our field crew for the 2022 season and beyond. We are looking for people who are energetic, passionate about sustainable and productive agriculture, and love working in community. Experience is a plus, but not absolutely necessary if you are physically fit, hard working, and eager to work hard and learn lots. This is a great opportunity for aspiring farmers who want to learn and gain experience to run their own farms in the future.
