Some interest in or understanding of farming systems could be helpful, but isn’t necessary.
All employees should be well able to come to work well-prepared with weather-appropriate clothing, water bottles, snacks, etc. We will cancel work if there is dangerous weather, but you will end up working in cool or rainy conditions, or really hot and humid ones. Being well-prepared keeps you comfortable, and thus more able to get your job done properly. We don’t provide foul weather gear for our crew, so that becomes your responsibility. Some items that we find to be essential to our comfort are: rain pants and rain coats, muck boots, closed-toed shoes, large hats, sunglasses, long-sleeved button-down shirts for sun protection, long pants (makes kneeling easier.)
If you are interested in either of the positions, please email the farm manager at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the title of the position you are applying for in the subject line. Please provide three work references, a resume and an email explaining why you are interested in the position. We will be hiring until positions are filled.
