About Sin Fronteras ( Without Borders in Spanish) Farm & Food
The farm began in the summer of 2014 on one acre of leased land near Stillwater, Minnesota. The first season we only had 1/2 of an acre in production and the rest in cover crop. We grew twenty different kinds of vegetables which were sold at the Linden Hills Farmers Market.
Now we are on our own 17 acre farm near Stockholm, Wisconsin with 3 acres in vegetable production using organic and sustainable farming practices. During our growing season we provide produce to local Twin Cities restaurants and grocery cooperatives. We also have a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program geared towards the traditional diets of the Latinx/Mexicanx community. We believe we are the first to market a culturally appropriate CSA to Latinx households in the Twin Cities and hope to continue to expand access to local foods for our communities with creative methods.
Our employment opportunities are especially beneficial for, but not limited to, someone exploring or pursuing vegetable farming as a career. There will be opportunities for significant education on the farm as well as in conjunction with neighboring farms. Preference is given to qualified applicants who are interested in returning to the farm for an additional season or more.
Priority given to those applicants that want to work for multiple years. Training and support is available for the right candidate to take on more of a management role in future years. Meals are on your own or with other farm staff.
Farm crew members must be able to stay for the entire duration of the season. The typical workweek is 7am – 5:00pm, Monday thru Friday (this can be flexible), with a 45 minute paid break for lunch.
We are looking for candidates willing to work two Saturdays a month, staffing our on-farm market and Taco Saturdays. Hours can vary depending on weather, but usually range from 40-48 hours/week.
