HCF Employment

So you wanna be a farmer?

Hermit Creek Farm is an 140 acre, certified organic farm located about 20 miles south of Ashland, Wisconsin. This is a diverse-crop, family farm that specializes in vegetables, fruit, herbs, pastured pork, sheep, and maple syrup. We are well known for our season-long, high quality greens, crispy carrots and an 11-month CSA.

Farming is tough. Are you?

If you spend a season at Hermit Creek, you will learn a lot about yourself and a lot about farming. The rigors and joys of raising vegetables for market create a unique experience—one that stays with you for life, whether you go on to become a farmer or not. It’s immensely challenging work, but tremendously satisfying too.



Creating a healthy farm requires an operation that works smoothly and does not unduly burden the workers. A primary goal at Hermit Creek Farm is to support the work with appropriate technology, procedures and staff. 
Does this sound like a way to spend your summer, or maybe your life? 

We typically hire up to 5 positions each field season, April/May through October, with first priority being given to returning employees.

Starting pay - $10.00/hour dependent on experience (may be negotiable).

Housing is not available (most of our employees live in Ashland).

Desirable skills include being in good physical shape, hand labor and/or food service experience, ability to work both “on-your-own” and in a crew setting, personal time management, attention to detail, orderliness, record keeping, and quality control management. Oh, and the ability to smile when dirty, bug bit, sun scorched and wet are great assets too!

Successful candidates will assist with all aspects of farm operation including weeding & cultivation, planting, mulching, harvest and packing, irrigation, etc. Emphasis is on results and getting things done, safety, quality control, meeting deadlines and goals, and efficiency.

We accept resumes at any time of the year although positions are filled in the late winter following reference checks and a short interview. Are you interested? Please contact us via email at info@hermitcreekfarm.com, we would like to hear from you.

We believe in the old adage, "you are what you eat!" and besides our belief in organic food being healthier for you, it's also healthier for your farmer and the land.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Hermit Creek, we're serious about how we farm, we're serious about our health, and we're serious about your health as well. Certified organic, it's simply plain old common sense.
