WORK WITH US
We’re hiring a full-time, year-round crew member to join our small team of farmers beginning in mid-June. This is not a seasonal job and it is not an apprenticeship. We work right through the winter.
Farm Crew members will take part in and learn most activities on the farm, including bed prep, transplanting, cultivating, trellising, lots of harvesting, greenhouse work, washing produce, and packing CSA boxes (among other things!). We are looking for people who: love to work hard outside in all weather, learn from mistakes, can lift 50 lbs often, think creatively, are aware of time and work pace, are able to listen well, have a good attitude even when work is repetitive, and can work exceptionally well with others.
We are a small crew and really value teamwork, finding joy in our work, and growing the best possible vegetables for our 230 CSA households.
Previous experience on vegetable farms is a plus but not required. We encourage people from all backgrounds to apply.
The work week is Monday - Friday, 45 hours a week, including a one hour paid lunch. During the winter (December to February), the hours might be 30-40 hours a week, depending on weather and workload. Farm lunch is provided one day a week. The workday is generally 8am - 5pm, but varies by season.
We love to cook and eat the food we grow! As an employee, you will get to share in the abundance of the farm and bring home lots of vegetables.
Pay starts at $14.50/hour. As a crew member you will get one week (5 days) paid vacation per year, which must be scheduled ahead of time to avoid overlapping with other employees. You will also get 5 days paid sick leave.
To apply, please send us a letter of interest, resume, and two references to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: FARM TEAM. Please get your application in by May 10th.
If you have further questions, please send us an email rather than messaging us on social media. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Thank you!
