Seasonal workers

We are accepting applications for 2018.  We will review applications in January! 

These people help with all aspects of vegetable production; transplanting, weeding, harvesting and maintenance.  Must be able to follow directions, work with the farmers as well as with a team. Workers must be in good health and physical shape and able to lift 40 – 50 lbs.  Hours are somewhat flexible and may increase with labor needs at different times of the season.  Generally, the hours are around 20 – 30 hours per week. Ambitious high school students welcome to apply as a summer job. Compensation: Commensurate with experience and performance.

In addition, fall seasonal help is always needed as we harvest our storage crops and prepare the fields for winter. (Limited availability)

Worker Share

Although we are a small family farm and CSA, the amount of vegetables that we grow would be impossible to maintain by ourselves!  We depend heavily on our worker shares that volunteer 4-5 hours each week in exchange for their Standard vegetable share.  Our past workers have been an amazing work force and have made sure that all of our harvest and delivery days have run smoothly and that we have delivered the freshest vegetables that we possibly could.  With smiles on their faces (every time I looked at least) they have worked in rain, heat, cold and mud.  As we grow, we add a few worker-shares each year.
