Wind Haven Farm Part Time Team Member There is one or two positions available for the 2021 season. Please keep in mind that we have now moved to King William County near Central Garage.
The Wind Haven Farm's season where we typically need part time team members runs from mid May- late October. Part time team members will be working 20-30 hours a week on average. Employees will perform many tasks associated with flower farming including: seed starting, planting, harvesting, farm maintenance, pest control, soil preparation, stage of harvest, post harvest care, bouquet making, and order processing.
Applicants must be able to work at least Monday, Tuesday, and either Wednesday or Thursday, along with occasional Saturday mornings if necessary, not to exceed one Saturday per month unless the team member volunteers for extra hours.
If you enjoy working hard, being outdoors, are a self-starter, detail-oriented, positive, creative, love flowers, color, nature, thrive in a fast paced team working environment, and are physically able to work all day in all weather conditions and lift heavy objects (this is still farming folks, even if it is flower farming), please fill out the form below.
Wind Haven Farm Full Time Team Member We will be hiring one person for this position for the 2021 season. Please keep in mind that we have now moved to King William County near Central Garage.
Full time team members work Monday-Thursday and typically work 40-45 hours a week. They are also sometimes required to do occasional Saturday morning harvests when absolutely necessary. The typical season for our full time team members can run from late January- early December. Although in the shoulder seasons the hours are reduced to part time. Part time hours generally occur in December- Mid March.
Full time team members also perform all the same tasks listed above in the part time description, with the difference that they should be prepared to take on more responsibility and leadership as they are present for the farms' entire work week operations compared to part time team members.
We prefer that applicants for the full time team member position have some farming experience, although if you have a resume that shows us a skillset we find valuable for our team, we do not absolutely require experience as long as you arrive with a can do positive attitude ready to learn.
