Are You a Good Fit for the Red Barn Farm Crew? If So, Apply Now.
Red Barn Farm is a four-season, Certified Naturally Grown farm with a strong focus on water and soil conservation. Just a mile north of the downtown Bentonville square, our farm is the heart of Arkansas’ first agrihood, and we’re looking to expand our team. The farm is still in its construction phase, so it’s a perfect time to get in on the ground level to gain knowledge and learn what it takes to start a farm. In addition to growing a wide range of vegetables and some fruit, we’re raising hens. Our outlets include an on-site farmstand, as well as local restaurants and farmers markets. Whether you’ve worked on or owned a farm or are just willing to learn, we’d like to hear from you.
Part Time: 20 to 30 hours a week (some evenings and a couple of Saturdays per month)
Full Time: 40+ hours a week (a couple of Saturdays a month and random evenings)
This position requires a self-starting, knowledge-seeking individual who’s willing to work in all weather conditions. You will be assisting in construction, greenhouse seeding, field planting, harvesting, packing, caring for chickens, selling, and working with volunteers. This person will be responsible for working with the crew and farm managers to complete daily/weekly chores and assist with projects to meet annual goals. A willingness to learn, grow, and ask questions is expected. While knowledge of plants, insects, and disease is appreciated, we’ll train you on our systems and farming practices.
