Job Description

  Part-time farm crew members work in the packhouse and in the field. This allows for a variety of tasks throughout the season. Crew members are trained on-the-job to perform the tasks they will be responsible to carry out (these tasks are listed below). We also encourage farm crew members to take advantage of the resources of the farm garden and farm lending library if this interests them.

Skills and Requirements

    We are looking for healthy, balanced people we can trust. We need people who come to work on time prepared for the day. Farm experience is good, but not required for this position. We do require all crew members to have physical work experience as farming is a very physically demanding job.

    Working on the farm requires lifting 50 lbs repeatedly, bending, kneeling, squatting, and standing for long periods. Work needs to be done in all weather conditions; cold and rainy as well as hot and sunny conditions. Please consider these requirements carefully before applying. We are seeking hardy people who can work gracefully with others and meet the challenges of farm work with good humor.

All crew members must:

  • Come to work on time dependably.

  • Have a working cell phone for communication.

  • Be able to follow instructions and pay attention to details.

  • Be able to commit to staying the duration of the season.

  • Be physically fit and able to lift 50 lbs. repeatedly.

  • Provide their own rubber boots and work footwear.

  • Be able to cope with the many challenges of farm work.

  • Be able to encourage others and see good in other people.

  • Be able to gracefully accept redirective feedback.

  • Be able to communicate clearly with other crew members and managers.
