Farm Field Crew

 April 15-Oct 1

+/- 30 hours a week

$13-15

Our farm field crew is essential to everything we do on the farm in our busy spring-summer-fall season. Spring begins with orchard pruning and mulching, mowing, repairing fencelines, lambing, and planting. In summer we have a busy farmstand and pick-your-own blueberry orchard and well as all the crops and sheep to tend to. Our farm crew also helps get berries to our wholesale accounts, restaurants and groceries.

Job responsibilities include:

  • orchard work: harvesting, weeding, mulching pruning, mowing
  • grazing and watering sheep, helping with health checks, fencing
  • garden and crop work, landscaping and fall firewood
  • shifts in the farmstand and helping customers on busy weekends
  • helping with farm events, concerts and dinners

Farm Crew hours are typically 8 am-3 pm, 5 days a week, and some weekends.

Experience needed:

Experience with physical work on a farm and outdoors in all weather is important. We are looking for people who are physically fit and strong, and who can work fast but do a job well. A lot of being successful on a farm is thinking about how to move efficiently and problem-solve when faced with a new task or problem. Good communication skills, engaging kind manner with customers and guests and a positive attitude are all also important. This is a very rewarding job in a beautiful setting.

Note: We require at least a 3 month commitment.
