Jubilee Farm is a mixed farm in the Snoqualmie Valley. We operate a year-round CSA, an October pumpkin patch, and raise pastured meat. Our CSA is the main outlet for our produce. While we are not certified organic, we are committed to growing clean food; we do not use any kind of herbicide, pesticide, or chemical fertilizer, and we have an intensive on farm fertility plan.
We are seeking an Assistant Farmer at Jubilee Farm. Jubilee is a second-generation highly diversified farm, raising vegetables, fruit, berries, grain, pumpkins, beef, pork, and poultry. We strive to produce our own fertility and are a very public facing farm.
With a diverse operation comes a diverse set of tasks, and the need for a diverse skill set. Each farm is somewhat idiosyncratic, and Jubilee Farm is no different. So we expect there to be on the job training for different areas and tasks of the farm, but the number one thing we are looking for is an eager and creative problem solver. Other important things the candidate must have are: a desire to learn, thrive working alone but also get along with others.
Preferred skills and abilities:
Knowledge of Organic Practices
Knowledge of crops, pests, and weed management
We are looking for a solid team player with an impeccable work ethic and desire to learn and grow to join our team full time and year round to assist in the wide variety of tasks needed to operate the farm.
