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. We need a hard working crew so we can grow and meet the demand for our shares. The primary responsibility for the field crew is to be quick and effective cultivators and harvesters. Most of the day will be spent weeding, harvesting, washing and packing vegetables. Some general farm work is involved. We harvest most of the crops the day they are distributed so it is essential that the harvest is finished quickly so that the truck can leave on time.
This is a full time seasonal position (April through Thanksgiving). Pay is based on the performance and experience of the candidate ($7.50-$12.00hr). During the peak season (May though Thanksgiving) the work week is Monday through Friday for ten hours a day and for half a day on Saturday. Health insurance is provided the second year of employment. Housing is available locally.
The candidate must possess the stamina to work long hours, a positive attitude and enjoy working with others. Vegetable farming experience is preferred. We have a domestic work force.
