Soil & Shovel Farm in Langley, BC is hiring a Farm Hand for the 2020 season!

About Soil & Shovel Farm

We run a 30 member CSA program in our small farm in South Langley. We are in our first year of operation on this site, and so a lot of set up work is still being done.

We have approximately 1 acre in production across 3 separate fields on the 20 acre property. Much of the machinery that we use is small scale and manual, but we do have a tractor available.

Our CSA program delivers directly to doorstep from late June until late October. We are collaborative with other growers, such as a local microgreen producer and an Okanagan tree fruit grower.

We are not certified organic, particularly due to being new in this site, but we follow all certifying organic standards. Biodiversity and food security are the passions that inform our choices.
