We are looking to fill multiple farm crew positions for the 2018 season
Employment begins in May and continues through October (approx. 40 hrs/wk). There is some potential for schedule flexibility, as well as continued part-time work beyond October if desired. This is a good opportunity for someone looking to continue to learn small scale farming of a diversity of crops and growing using high-tunnels for season extension. Previous farm experience preferred but not required.
Additionally there is the opportunity for someone in either position looking for year-round work to take on expansion of the farm’s shoulder season production.
The preferred applicants will have a strong work ethic, pay attention to details, be able to work quickly and well with a team, be willing to work alone at times, and be able to work under all kinds of weather conditions including rain, cold, sun, and breezy with partial clouds. A good sense of humor is always appreciated. Must be able to lift up to 50 lbs (about 1 basset hound). The job includes a range of field work including transplanting, field maintenance, harvesting, washing, packing, greenhouse work, and delivery. Pay commensurate with experience (starting pay is $11/hr), plus all of the organic produce you can eat.
To apply, please submit a letter of interest and a resume with two references by email to sean at leftfieldmaine.com
We also have work trade positions available for the summer. In exchange for a 3-hour shift one morning per week (usually spent harvesting, washing & packing veggies) work traders receive a full CSA share. Email sean at leftfieldmaine.com if you are interested.
