Join Our Team
Farming is a team effort and we are hiring farmhands to join us for our 2020 season. We grow a wide variety of vegetables (asparagus to zucchini), strawberries and blackberries. We also raise poultry for both eggs and meat.
Byrd Farm is a certified organic vegetable farm in Goochland County, Virginia. We enjoy our rural environment and work hard to grow the best possible produce. The ideal candidate will enjoy the demands and rewards of long days and must be physically able to perform all duties assigned.
Our days start early and we often work 35-55 hours per week, doing everything necessary for a successful harvest: planting, seeding, irrigating, harvesting, washing, and preparing produce for market. In the height of the season the work day begins at 6:00 a.m. This is a physically demanding position which requires bending, moving quickly, lifting, kneeling and standing for long periods of time.
While this is a full-time, entry level position, the ideal candidate should be familiar with growing produce in the Mid-Atlantic region. Experience caring for and processing pastured poultry is a plus, along with a working knowledge of farm equipment such as tractors.
Farmhand positions start in the spring and run into November. Our typical work week runs Monday through Friday, with some weekend work required. Applicants must be able to work the full season and all days scheduled during the week.
We grow year round and there is a possibility of continued hours during the winter.
