Native Offerings Farm is a 400 member and growing four season Certified Naturally Grown CSA farm 50 miles south of Buffalo in Otto, NY. We also have a 400 member fruit share and market our grass fed beef and heritage pork. We started the first CSA in Erie County in 1996. We were the Cattaraugus County Conservation Farm of the year 2008 and were the Edible Communities 2010 and 2011 Local Hero Award Winner. Stewart Ritchie is currently participating in LEAD NY Class 14.
Our shares have sold out for the last six years. To help us grow we are seeking a field crew leader. The primary responsibility will be to train the field crew and volunteers to be quick and effective cultivators and harvesters. The position involves working with the crew and setting pace and quality standards. You will also be responsible for training the crew and volunteers for our GAP program and ensuring that we meet the standards.
This is a full time position. Pay is based on the skills and the performance of the candidate. During the peak season (May though Thanksgiving) the work week is six days. The balance of the year is flexible. Health insurance is provided the second year of employment. Housing is available locally.
The candidate must possess good record keeping skills, the stamina to work long hours, a positive attitude and be a problem solver. Leadership skills and experience are essential. Vegetable farming experience is preferred. We use a local work force. What is important is that the volunteers and crew are getting the job done to our standards and at the same time feeling that they are valued and an important part of a successful farm.
Applications are available on our website http://www.nativeofferings.com
