Jobs at Reverence Farms
Farm Hand/Farm Laborer
We at Reverence Farms currently have a position available on the FARM. In drafting this job opening, we were shocked and appalled to learn that the synonyms for “farm labor” include words such as “drudge.” We aren’t seeking a drudge, we are seeking a Nathan, or more accurately Nathan’s replacement. In theory this position’s title would be Farm Hand or Farm Laborer. The days are long, the work is hard, and it MUST be done regardless of the weather. A huge part of it is manual labor. Milking cows, feeding cows, sheep, chickens, turkeys, and pigs. Running fence, then driving the tractor, then back to feeding cows, sheep, chickens, turkeys, and pigs. Then muck out a stall, fill mineral feeders, scrub water tubs, the list goes on. When written like this, it seems as though the synonyms for Farm Laborer are accurate, we could even go so far as to use one of those synonyms and write “Reverence Farms Seeks A Drudge.” But our work isn’t drudgery to us, and it won’t be to the person who fills this role.
We *are* seeking someone who can indeed do all those things listed above and more. The right person for this position will be thoughtful and pay attention to detail. This person is caring, efficient, and observant all at once. It would be great if this person had a sense of humor, but he or she MUST be positive and truly enjoy working outdoors with animals. This person can lift and carry 50 lbs or work up to it, and they have excellent communication skills. We want a person who wants to work on a farm and to be part of a team of people that really cares about the animals, land, and each other. Experience is preferred but we are willing to train the right person.
This position is an hourly position, with two days off per week. You must be able to work weekends. Hours are between 40-45 hours in the summer months and 30-40 hours in winter months.
