Farm Office Assistant

I’m looking for somebody with a great personality and good sense of humor to work with me as an assistant on our organic vegetable farm.

Flexible hours – You must have some afternoon availability, but a lot of the work can be done at any time of day. Your hours will fluctuate during the course of the year. You will work more hours during the 7 months of our busy farm season. Fridays are especially busy during the summer. The other 5 months of the year will require less work. These are the approximate hours you will work:

December – April: 10 – 15 hours per week

May – November: 25 – 35 hours per week

There is also the potential for you to work more hours in the summer/fall if you’d like to work at our CSA pickups, the Boulder farmers’ market, or on our farm.

A few things to consider before you apply:
