Farm Field Crew

 July 1-Aug 30, 2020

+/- 15 hours per week (can be combined with another part-time position at the farm)

$12/hour

An ideal job for someone still in school who loves to pick berries! Our farm field crew is primarily in charge of harvesting the berry crop and getting it to retail and wholesale markets. But farm crew members help with all aspects of the farm operation, in peak season. We grow certified organic berries, have an active farm stand on the property, and raise Icelandic sheep for breedstock, meat and fiber.

Job responsibilities include:

  • orchard work: weeding, mulching pruning, trellising, mowing
  • efficiently and quickly harvesting berries in peak season for our wholesale accounts 
  • restocking the farmstand and helping customers on busy weekends
  • caring for sheep – watering, health checks, rotational grazing, moving fences 
  • watering, weeding and tending to gardens and compost
  • helping with farm events, concerts and dinners if applicable

Farm Crew hours are typically 8 am-1 pm, 3 days a week, and some weekends.

Experience needed:

Experience with physical work on a farm and outdoors in all weather is important. Berry picking experience essential. 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.
