NOW HIRING 2018 SUMMER FIELD CREW
Bloomsbury Farm is seeking individuals to join our 2018 Field Crew. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals with a passion for sustainable farming and community-based agriculture.
Bloomsbury Farm is a GAP, GFSI, and Organic-certified farm outside of Nashville, nestled in the hills between Smyrna and Nolensville, TN. We grow produce, sprouts, wheatgrass, and herbs on our 400-acre farm. We have 30 acres of land in production, along with 4 hoop houses, a small orchard, and a poultry flock.
We grow year-round. Our goods are sold through CSA shares (currently at 300+ members), at Nashville-area farmers markets, to area restaurants and shops, and to wholesale customers. We have a commitment to sustainability, not only to the land, but to ourselves and to those around us. Every seed we plant is done so with dedication and love. Our commitment is simple — to provide only the best.
Crew members will be mainly responsible for the harvesting and packaging of produce. Other job duties will include weeding, planting, field maintenance, greenhouse planting and maintenance, along with other farm duties as necessary. Summer crew members will also get experience in our sprout, herb, and wheatgrass operations. There will also be opportunities to work at the farmer’s markets and CSA drops.
