About the Farm
Hole in the Woods Farm is a rapidly-growing, Certified Naturally Grown, family- and community-oriented diversified small farm located in Culver, IN. We produce a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, grass-fed lamb, fruits, nuts, mushrooms, microgreens, and baked items available via home delivery, farmers’ markets, and restaurants in the region.
The Successful Team Member
Hole in the Woods Farm operates in a team environment. Everyone assumes, and relies on, the goodwill and best interests of each member of the team. As such, the most successful team members have a high level of interest in learning about multiple facets of local food production and entrepreneurism. Members should be detail-oriented, self-starting, observant, curious, communicative, punctual, and able to work both independently and closely with a small group on various tasks as needed.
Small farm experience is appreciated, but not required.
We currently offer part-time seasonal work. Because we are rapidly growing, there is an opportunity for the right team member to develop a position to their own strengths and goals. This includes the possibility of exploring specific niche duties on the farm, potentially developing a full-time, year ‘round leadership position, if the team member and management mutually agree on such a path.
