• NOW HIRING FULL TIME 2021: Fruitscape Design & Installation Coordinator

    In 2020 Just Fruits began landscape design and installation projects for customers. We call it “Fruitscaping”.  You can see our customer page for this service by clicking here.    The new service was a success, and we are now seeking someone with experience in design & installation of these types of projects.  Projects vary as we serve clients from Tallahassee all the way out to the Apalachicola/Saint James bay area.  Projects include planting an orchard for customers, or creating an at home oasis that may have both ornamental & fruiting trees, a fire pit, lighting, and pathways.

    For this position we are looking for someone who can work full time, that has both the artistic skills of designing landscapes, and the installation skills to co-lead on the jobs. We are seeking someone who is organized, has strong leadership skills, and is committed to a long-term career at a growing business.    Having “experience” in this does not require that you have worked in this same position before, but that you have a strong knowledge base in this field.

    Our Fruitscape Design & Installation Coordinator is an integral part of the business operations at our nursery. We only do installations for customers, we do not provide on-going maintenance services.  Therefore,  when not on a job, this position will assist the field crew in propagation, plant care, grounds keeping, and many other tasks around the nursery.  We cross-train all full-time employees in many areas of the nursery, as we are known for the highest quality plants & expertise. This knowledge starts with every employee at Just Fruits and is passed on to our community of gardeners.

    • Full Time, 40 hours (Potential overtime some weeks. Must be willing to work extended hours when necessary)

Welcome To Our Family!

JF&E may be a family owned business, but we treat all of our staff as part of the family.  Our number one focus in hiring is the person, not simply their resume.  We search for people who have a passion for agriculture, and believe in our mission.  We also seek those who are willing to learn and cross-train in numerous areas, rather than be in one single role.  This is very important to us, as we seek those who want to truly be part of the growth of a fast growing business.  JF&E is unique in that we are not only a nursery that strives to serve our local community, but also one that is nationally renowned, shipping thousands of plants every year.  We are known for our expertise, and value educating gardeners across the nation.  In order to be successful, our entire team is passionate about all areas of the nursery, taking pride in everything from pulling a weed to propagation.

We Aim to Provide Careers, Not Jobs.

At JF&E we focus on creating careers, not jobs. We are a fast growing business, that is seeking individuals who want to build a career in agriculture.  We hire both Full Time and Part Time (minimum 20 hours per week) but are seeking employees with long-term goals.  We put a lot of effort into educating our team,  helping them grow with the business, and developing close bonds with our staff as if they were part of the family.  In our hiring process we seek those who want to make a difference long-term.

JF&E University

Working with JF&E is not just a career. To many it is an education on agriculture.  Unlike many retail nurseries, we provide the opportunity to truly learn every step of the business.  Here at Just Fruits we are more than just a retail plant nursery.  Not only do we visit other farms and develop grow contracts specifically tailored to our high quality plant demands, but we also grow thousands of fruit trees right on sight. Our employees learn everything from propagation, to caring & quality control,  to sales both retail and E-Commerce.     The nursery is owned by two brothers-in-law who provide completely different skillsets, one who manages the nursery and is an expert on plants, and the other who owns multiple businesses and runs the business operations.  Both not only have been cross-training each other on each skill, but are also willing to educate the employees on every aspect of the business.  If you are seeking a starting career in agriculture where you can learn and grow, JF&E is a great fit.
