POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Fall Farm Crew (2-3 openings)
Hilltop Hanover Farm & Environmental Center is looking for mature, responsible, hard-working, and enthusiastic people to join our farm crew for the 2018 autumn season. Each member of our crew is part of our “team” and plays an important role in field cultivation and maintenance, harvest, and distribution of crops.
Farm crew work includes all aspects of vegetable growing, with an emphasis on harvesting and post-harvest handling. Daily tasks include greenhouse work, transplanting, hand cultivation, washing and sorting harvested crops, and disease and pest management. Duties may also include work at our retail farm stand and events, occasional livestock chores, or general farm chores and property maintenance. This is a seasonal position beginning immediately and running through the end of November. A typical work week is 40-45 hours Monday through Friday, with some weekend work required.
Ideal candidates will be reliable, hardworking and able to effectively communicate in a positive manner. A minimum of one season of crop farming experience is required; applicants should have a strong understanding of the physical requirements of working on a farm. Farm crew members must work well in a team environment and be able to accept instruction on farm tasks and vegetable quality standards.
The nature of farm labor requires that the individual maintains the ability to repetitively lift 50lbs and work continuously in all weather conditions. Experience with farm tools and equipment is preferred.
We offer an hourly wage of $12.50-15.00/hour, depending on experience. Farm crew members are welcome to harvest produce from the fields for their own consumption. Applicants with multiple seasons of farm experience or farm management experience are encouraged to apply; compensation and responsibilities may be adjusted to reflect this.
To apply, please email us your resume, cover letter, and two references.
