Cornell Farm Careers

Redefining the Garden Center

Cornell Farm


Set on five acres in the beautiful West Hills of Portland, Cornell Farm is a family owned Garden Center & Cafe that’s been consistently recognized by our peers as one of the leaders of this industry. 

For the past 36 years, our outstanding customer service team, top quality plants, and inspiring location have drawn people from all over the Pacific Northwest. 

We’re looking for candidates who thrive working outdoors in all the elements and have a passion for plants and people. Plants need care rain or shine, snow or heat, and thus caring for them takes hardy individuals (we’re farmers after all!).

If you would describe yourself as a hard worker, a great teammate, and you want to work in an active, ever-changing, dynamic environment, please reach out!
