Raleigh’s Hillside Farm is pleased to announce that we have three openings for worker share positions on our farm this season! This is a great opportunity to learn more about what goes into a vegetable farming operation, hang out with your favorite farmers, and enjoy free veggies for your time!

Worker shares are required to complete a set amount of hours each week throughout the 20 week CSA growing season in exchange for their CSA share. The weekly hour commitment is 5 hours per week for full shares or 3 hours per week for half shares (or every-other-week half shares). You will commit to a work schedule with us prior to the season. We know how hectic summer can get, so worker shares may miss two weeks during the growing season without penalty. However, the earlier you can let us know what weeks you won’t be available, the better! We do also allow worker shares to begin working once per week prior to the season so that they have the option to finish early.

For 2016, we are hoping to find worker shares with Tuesday availability (our CSA harvest day) but can be flexible so long as you can find a regularly scheduled weekly time to come out to the farm during the week. Sorry, no weekend positions available!

Possible worker share tasks include seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, packing CSA boxes and/or other farm maintenance. We require a two-hour “working interview” in the spring to make sure you are a good fit for our farm.

Raleigh’s Hillside Farm is located 40 minutes south of Madison (10 minutes south of Evansville).
