Field & Florist provides cut flowers to Chicago’s leading florists and wholesalers. Join our small and fierce team as we begin spring flower production at our new site in Three Oaks, MI, just an hour and a half from Chicago.
Our new farm is 8x larger than our former growing site, and the spring production schedule will be rigorous.
Applicants must be over 21, able to lift 50 lbs., and able to work outdoors in all weather conditions. A positive, hard-working attitude is more important than extensive flower or farming knowledge, however, two years farming experience preferred. A passion for flowers, farming, and teamwork are a must.
