Hiring – Laurel, MD: Gorman Farms CSA Distribution Team Member – 2018
Gorman Farms is seeking positive and motivated people to join our CSA Distribution Team!
Are you are interested in being a team player on a productive organic vegetable farm?
We are seeking staff to help us grow and improve our farm into the future. We seek people that can participate for the entirety of the season.
The best candidates will have some customer service experience, and or familiarity with vegetables and farm sales. An interest in local and organic food, retail experience, produce handling and any knowledge of CSA programs is preferable. A friendly, helpful demeanor is a must. Reliability and trustworthiness, with a cheerful, engaging personality and a love of vegetables are essential.
Our CSA distribution is located in Howard County, MD in a refurbished vintage barn with the quaint, warm and friendly feel of a farmer’s market atmosphere. The barn is located just steps away from the crops on one of our organic farm locations.
Our Distribution Barn is the main hub of our business. Being involved, you will learn the inner workings of a highly efficient and productive organic produce operation. We are an ambitious farm, small enough that your presence will really have an impact and large enough that you will get a diversity of experience.
Assist in managing the weekly shares of the CSA program through a well managed and highly efficient market style distribution. Each week presents its own flow of incoming and outgoing produce, while we distribute to our seasoned and new customers. Maintaining flow and productivity via our packing shed, various walk-in coolers, and CSA barn is top priority. On the farm there are many moving parts, and while no job is beneath us, we often have to wear many hats. There may be various tasks outside of these descriptions that come up from time to time.
