Featherstone Fruits and Vegetables is a 250-acre fresh-market produce farm near Rushford, MN. The farm has been certified organic since 1997, and domestic fair trade since 2007. More information on the farm is available at www.featherstonefarm.com.
The farm employs between 25-30 people from April through November, and 6-8 throughout the winter. We offer on-the-job training and are particularly interested in employing workers on a long-term basis.
All Featherstone employees have a certain amount of exposure to all aspects of the farm’s operations, but many focus to some degree on a few areas (such as greenhouse or tractor work or CSA packing), where they can take real responsibility. This responsibility and experience, in turn, is the very best teacher.
Featherstone Farm provides a competitive wage (based on experience), produce and housing for the majority of its employees, in accordance with its fair trade program.
