Would you like to work for your box of veggies? This year, we plan to hire 15 people to help run our CSA farm operation. We are now recruiting Harvest Assistants and Packing Assistants. Both positions work once a week on either Monday or Wednesday from 4-8:30 PM for 19 weeks this summer (early June through mid-October). Harvesters work the fields, picking the produce for our boxes, and washing and preparing them for packaging. Packing assistants pack the fruit shares and help clean and package the vegetable produce. Both positions require you to attend every week all season long (one week vacation is allowed). It is also hard work, and we work rain or shine. We are looking for people who have a hard work ethic, enjoy the outdoors, and can work quickly and efficiently. But we also look for self-motivated people and good attitudes. Living locally helps. Compensation is a half vegetable share and a fruit share.
We like to think our staff is pretty great, and they have a great time each week So don’t be intimidated! We encourage you to apply. To apply for one of the positions, please email us a resume and/or a letter to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing why you want to work for us and what you think you bring to the table. Also include 2 references. Please tell us which position(s) you would like to apply for. You can view our job descriptions online on our website under the FARM BASICS/ EMPLOYMENT tab. We hope to interview in March and have our staff in place by April.
Note: Not everyone who applies will be hired.
