Blue Sky Organic Farms Litchfield Park, AZ.
Organic farm seeks full-time employee interested in learning the hands-on and business of modern agriculture.

Blue Sky Organic Farms is a family-run farm in Litchfield Park, Arizona, in operation since 1995. The 35-acre farm is certified organic, which means the fields and growing practices meet strict federal standards. We grow 100% of the produce we offer. A selection of our produce is available at Whole Foods Grocery Stores across the Valley, at the Scottsdale Farmers Market, and at our farm store. We recently started a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program in which our neighbors support our farm in exchange for a weekly share of our harvest.

We hope to find a candidate willing to work 20 to 40 hours a week. Salary is negotiable. Tasks include hands-on assistance in the fields, tractor operation, irrigation work, and general helping out around the farm. You will learn what it takes to work on a farm but also what it take to run a farm, which includes seeding, equipment, and money management. When you’ve finished your time with us, you will leave with the full knowledge of how to make a farm work, and hopefully, you will be able to start a farm of your own. A business background is useful but not required. We also want people who are passionate about healthy living, buying local, and serving the community.
