Winters Farm Florals Is Hiring!

Winters Farm Florals is hiring for 2022!
About our Farm:
We grow high quality flowers for florists and designers throughout Maryland and Delaware. We primarily focus on no-till methods to promote sustainable practices on our farm. We currently have about ¾ acre in annuals, ¾ acre in perennials, and an unheated high tunnel for season extension. Our main farm implements include a small Kubota tractor and hand tools. Our farm is located on the southern part of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, about 15 minutes outside of Salisbury. Our season generally goes from April through November.
Our Culture:
The world of fresh flowers is a time-sensitive, fast-paced environment. Mornings are the busiest time of day, as this is when all harvesting and processing occurs. Afternoons are a little more flexible as we complete other tasks around the farm.
Our team is small and tight-knit, and we spend a lot of time together! Humor and laughter are ever-present throughout the day. I want to get to know you, your hobbies and passions, your likes and dislikes. The work can be laborious and the weather can be hot, but we are all in this together. We complete tasks right alongside each other, and we all share the on-farm responsibilities.
Job Description:
Our responsibilities as a team include:
• Weeding
• Moving and spreading compost
• Push mowing aisles
• Planting seeds, plugs, tubers
• Harvesting efficiently and accurately
• Watering
• Crop tear down
• Bunching flowers and prepping for bouquet work.
• Washing flower buckets and keeping workspace clean
• Assisting with fulfilling weekly orders
Team members work an 8-hour day with a half hour unpaid lunch break. We start around 7:00am during most of the season, but if it’s really hot or if it’s too dark to start that early, we may shift the start time about a half hour either way.
This position is seasonal, which means that it is fast-paced and busy. We may end our work days a couple of hours early in the summer when the heat index is high, but otherwise expect full work days no matter the weather. Ideal work days are Monday through Friday.
Qualifications:
• Must enjoy working outdoors and be able to work outside in all conditions.
• Able to work both independently and on a team
• Must be able to lift 40 pounds and be able to stand, squat, bend, cut, kneel during the work period.
• A positive attitude and a desire to learn
• Must have reliable transportation
How to Apply:
We are hiring one part-time and one full-time employee for the 2022 summer season who can work either every morning (Monday – Friday) or a full work day (Monday – Friday). Apply by contacting us at wintersfarmflorals@gmail.com. Please tell us a bit about yourself, including why you are interested in working on a farm.
