My position is a Ranch Hand/ Waiter. For the majority of this position, time is spent outside with a shovel, wheel barrel, or hoe. Because of this reason, one must be physically fit to perform the sometimes extensive sub-jobs around the farm. Don’t let that discourage you. Although the position is hard at times, both Brian and Amanda are very open in making business decisions and encourage feedback on the choices they make. So, along with growing knowledge about how a farm runs and operates, you also gain insight in what it takes to successfully plan and execute an event. On event nights we assume a completely different role and responsibility. As a waiter, I catered to the customer’s needs and wishes. All meals are preplanned, and the farm operates under a BYOB policy, or "Bring your own beverage." Because of this policy, my primary responsibility is presenting the meals and explaining them to the customer. This is very important because all the meals are a collaboration of good from local farms. The position pays 10$ an hour and employees are asked to work as often as they choose or as little as they can. Along with getting in great physical shape, the job offers a wide variety of knowledge on farming and running a restaurant.
