Work Opportunities

Be Part

of Our Team!

10th Street Farm and Market located just east of the Twin Cities in Afton, MN is an extended season micro-farm using organic, intensive growing practices with a diversified business model, allowing us to farm year-round with minimal labor and land use. Our markets include a four season CSA, wholesale, and a farm stand. 

Come Work On Our Farm!

Are you looking for work that is meaningful, physical and is outside? 

10th Street Farm is a four-season vegetable farm located in Afton, MN, just 20 minutes east of St. Paul. We sell our vegetables year-round and hyper-locally via seasonal CSA, wholesale, and an on-farm market stand.

 

We focus on mostly non-mechanical intensive vegetable production – meaning very little tractor work and lots of fun bed flips. We utilize innovative tools to make our lives easier and crops happier, like moveable high tunnels, Paperpot transplanters, and various heating solutions for season extension. We also grow cut flowers and have a commercial kitchen on-site, although crew do not typically work on those enterprises.

 

In 2024 we have many crew members returning and are looking for one additional person to join our team. Preference will be given to candidates with relevant farming experience and interest in staying on more than one season, but anyone passionate about sustainably grown vegetables with a strong work ethic is invited to apply!

 

Timeframe: April/May - October

Hours: Monday-Friday, ~8am-2:00pm. Can be flexible for the right candidate.

 

What to expect:

  • Work in all weather conditions, including standing, bending, squatting, and occasionally lifting

  • The varied mix of tasks found on a diversified vegetable farm: harvesting, washing, weeding, seeding, trellising, packing, sorting, cleaning, transplanting, and more

  • Hard but rewarding work with a crew of interesting people!

 

Things We Expect:

  • Commitment. Our small farm depends on reliable labor. We understand that life is unpredictable, but we expect that crew members who sign on for a season stay for that entire season. And we look for crew members who are invested in the farm’s success and willing to work efficiently to get things done.

  • Learning in a fast-moving environment. We may do things slightly differently than other larger farms, and expect people to come to work ready to learn new things and share their ideas as well.

More details:

  • The position runs April (or early May) through the end of October, with the possibility of staying on part-time in the winter 

  • We utilize a task ticket system, in which daily tasks are clearly written out and given to employees, to enable autonomy and clarity on the farm.

  • Pay is $12-$15/hr depending on experience​, plus extra veggies, flowers, and goodies from the kitchen

  • We are happy to share any and all knowledge and resources at our disposal to help people learn about sustainable agriculture​

  • This is a one-of-a-kind place to learn about small-scale intensive vegetable production, and a great springboard for anyone looking to someday start their own farm
