To apply for a job, you must first sign up for the site.

Stoneboat farm is a sustainable vegetable.  The work is physical and outside 90% of the time, and it’s fulfilling and satisfying about 100% of the time. We sometimes spend all day bent over a row planting little plants or continuously harvesting so. much. salad. But, by the end of the season you can see the thousands of plants producing wonderful food for our community.

Responsibilities:
This job has two parts, and we would consider a person for either or both parts of the job. The job is 2-3 days a week on the farm crew (generally morning shifts) and two days helping out at our on farm market (afternoon to evening shifts). We are looking to hire ASAP.
Farm crew:
As a whole, the farm crew is responsible for doing most of the hand work on the farm. You will have a part in clean up, seeding, transplanting, irrigation, harvest, post harvest, clearing out the fields, and just about everything we do on the farm. You might work by yourself with some direction at the beginning of the task or you might work with a crew to get a larger task done. We work every week day, how many and which days you work can be flexible.

Market help: We need help running our very large CSA and on farm market each week on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The job is similar to working a farmers market booth (or even a catering event) – you’ll help set up the tents, tables, and veggies and then keep tables stocked and help folks choose their veggies. Being willing to be helpful and kind to the members is a must, knowing about veggies is a plus! You may do some set up alone but you will always work the market with someone else.

Requirements:
Must be able to work with others to cooperatively finish tasks
Must be able to lift and carry 35 pound bins over uneven dirt paths
Must be able to lift up to 50 pounds on occasion
Must be willing to work outside in the weather every day you are here
Must be willing to follow directions and learn from other crew members and leaders

Compensation:
Starts at $15.00 per hour, depending on experience and willingness to take on additional responsibilities
As many veggies as you’d like!

Experience:
Experience on a farm is preferred. We have space for all sorts of skills on the crew each year and will hire people with no farm experience if you are willing to learn and especially if you have other skills to share (garden experience, maintenance experience, experience with physical labor, experience selling veggies, or anything else related).

Some farm crew jobs may include added responsibilities. We look for people with more experience for these jobs.
