Each growing season, Cedar Circle Farm hires good people to work in the fields where all the vegetables and berries are grown, in the greenhouses where the flowers and vegetable bedding plants grow, in the farmstand, where everything is sold, and in the bakery/kitchen where we produce our own products and baked goods for the coffee shop.
We all work as a team for a common purpose, which is to provide quality, organic produce and garden material to the local community. Generally, crew members also play some part in our educational programs as well, helping out with festivals, Dinners in the Field, and school tours. We look for people who are hard-working, fun-loving, and who want to make a contribution to a healthier planet.
