We are looking for hard-working hands to join our crew! A job description is tricky, since most of us on the farm wear several hats and do a little bit of everything each day. We need someone that can do the same; field work, washing and packing, arranging bouquets, selling at farmer’s market, and anything in between.
We like to fit the job to the person. After a few weeks on the farm, we will discuss your strengths, where you want the job to take you, and with that in mind where you best fit into our existing crew.
Farming experience is not necessary, but a positive attitude, strong work ethic, love of fresh vegetables, and an ability to adapt are! Outdoor, physical labor experience is a plus.
New crew members starting wage is $12/hour, but if you work hard and catch on quickly, we are more than happy to raise that. Hours can be full-time or part-time.
Snow's Bend Farm is a Certified Organic, family farm just outside of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We currently grow 50 different fruits and vegetables (many varieties within those), cut flowers, herbs, as well as raising pastured pork. All farm products are directly marketed to Birmingham and Tuscaloosa through our 200+ member CSA, 2 farmer's markets, and to 15 restaurants..
Ideally, when someone new comes to work on Snow's Bend we would like for it to be the beginning of a 3-year track, longer would be even better! The first year would be an introduction to our farm and farming systems. In the second year, more responsibilities would be given, and in the third year full management responsibilities of some areas would be handed over. With this in mind, everyone begins as an intern or crew member, but there is plenty of room for growth and performance-based pay increases.
