We use no-till, regenerative practices with a strong focus on how soil, environmental and human health intersect. Job Description: Ethos is looking for an aspiring farmer to work both in the field and in the farm stand starting in April and going through October. The schedule includes two, eight-hour days in the field and two eight-hour days in the farm stand. The work days are Thursday through Sunday.

Our ideal candidate is someone who has some farm experience, is excited to learn, has a good work ethic and attitude, enjoys being outdoors, even in the rain, wind and heat, has good health and is fit enough to bend, squat and shovel for hours as well as lift 50lbs. A sense of humor goes a long way. Commitment and reliability are paramount. We’re counting on you to help us run the farm and in return we’ll teach you all we know and prepare you to be a successful, environmentally conscious farmer. There is potential for continued employment beyond the season as well as pay increases based on performance. The pay is $12/hour on the books which includes workman’s comp.
