We’re looking for a farm worker who will assist with mushroom production at the CTHM farm.  That is you’d be assisting founding farmer Jeremy in managing the farm and especially mushroom production.  Often you’ll be working with little oversight on your own or alongside Seth (farmer worker), part-time workers, and seasonal interns.

The work: In the winter and spring, you’d be helping with logging for mushroom logs, inoculating or moving logs, and farm construction projects.

Fall and winter work again is once again assisting in construction projects, logging, and inoculations.

Duration: year-round

Compensation: hourly work – generally at a rate of $10 to $12 per hour depending on ability and experience.  Housing is available for rent at an affordable rate, either in our bunkhouse or a room in our farmhouse with shared bathroom and kitchen.  All farmhands have use of kitchen equipment and a few food staples like oil, mushrooms, and eggs.

Work Location: We have a beautiful 38 acre farm at 827 15th St., Clayton, WI 54004, about an hour and a half from the Twin Cities.  Besides mushrooms we have chickens, ducks, and plans to bring pigs back to the farm!

Selection Criteria: Candidates should have at least a few months of general farm work experience.  He or she should be able to work hard with reasonable speed and attention to detail, and should be able to lift 75 lbs.  He or she should work well in a small team that will include other employees, interns, and myself.
