Season: June through October
Wage: DOE $15-17/hour
The Utah Flower Farm is a female owned/operated, startup cut rose farm in Holladay, Utah. At UFF, we grow an impressive variety of roses. Our mission is to provide high quality, locally grown cut flowers for our store front, local florists, and our booths at seasonal farmer markets at Wheeler Farm and Downtown Salt Lake City. The Flower Production Assistant will work closely with The Farm Manager and The Assistant Farm Manager to manage and harvest over 4,000 rose plants, June through October. The Flower Production Assistant will be asked to represent our farm at local farmer’s markets throughout the summer season, and will need to enthusiastically discuss our products and our farming practices with the public.
This position is ideal for someone interested in learning about cut flower production, or looking to expand one’s experience in the field. This position offers a wide exposure to flower farming, from propagation to harvesting, including post harvest handling. Majority of the hours will be fieldwork, with the potential to work at our storefront gaining experience in floral arranging and will require weekends at local farmer’s markets. One should expect hard, repetitive physical work planting, weeding, watering, harvesting flowers, lugging water buckets, cleaning and maintaining equipment.
