Greetings and happy spring from Littlewood Farm!
Sweet overwintered spinach is headed to the Co-ops, the seedling greenhouses are filling up quickly, and the to-do list is beginning to outpace our efforts already – all sure signs the growing season is upon us. The Annual Seedling Sale is on for 2022 and we will open as usual starting Mother’s Day weekend (May 7th this year). Look to our “Seedling Sale 2022” page to be updated in the coming weeks with details on varieties, pricing, etc.
In other news, Littlewood Farm is hiring for the 2022 growing season! Crop production is expanding and we are looking for one part-time individual to join our team ~20-30hrs/week, May – October. We are looking for someone who is available Fridays (our biggest harvest day), but can be flexible on which other days fit your schedule. The work involves all aspects of vegetable production including seeding, transplanting, cultivating, and lots of harvesting.

We love to pass on our experience and knowledge to employees and encourage their passion. Candidates must be able to work efficiently whether individually or with a team. We respect and encourage individuals of all racial identities, gender identities, and sexual orientations to apply.
