OPEN POSITIONS

Flower Harvester

Broadturn Farm is looking to fill 3 positions for seasonal flower harvesters from mid June through September. This is a part time job but could extend to full time if both parties are willing and able. The schedule for this position is 5AM-12PM Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. Duties would include working to harvest a variety of flower crops in all types of weather. We produce over 300 different flower crops. No experience in necessary but you must have a love of flowers. You must love watching the sunrise and the fog lift. You must love carrying armloads of blooms back to the barn. And then, once you get over all that romance on the first day, you must be willing to show up every day after that and sweat, get a few bug bites, and laugh and joke and sing karaoke with our boisterously funny crew. It’s hard work but fun and often supremely beautiful. The schedule is not flexible. These are the days we need help. Serious inquiries only. Please send a resume to alaena@broadturnfarm.com
