Sunrise Farm is looking for an employee starting in late August 2017 and working thru December 2017 (or beyond).
The majority of time will be spent growing and harvesting vegetables as well as helping to care for the livestock. Our CSA is 100-percent on-farm pickup, so you will have a chance to interact with CSA members whether you’re restocking the kale or selling lamb sausage. The job is 40 hours per week, Monday through Friday, with a rotating share of weekend chores.
-You don’t need to be an experienced farm hand but do need to act like one. We are a production farm and will train as needed.
-We work in rain, sun, snow, wind, heat, and cold. Preparedness and a positive attitude are essential for success. We also shift frequently from one task to another, so an ability to transition efficiently is important.
-We aim to work hard during work hours and then knock off at a reasonable time. You must be able to put in a solid eight hours of effort every weekday, lift heavy objects, and deal with whatever comes along. You also need to be able to work closely with other people, since most activities require joint effort.
-We slaughter our own chicken and lamb on farm—you must be a willing and active participant in this.
-Valid driver’s license
-This is a paid position, starting at $10/hour and increasing with experience.
-On-farm housing is available.
-The farm is just three miles from White River Junction, the cultural hub of east-central Vermont, and eight miles from Hanover, New Hampshire, home of Dartmouth College. The farm is two hours from Boston, three hours from Montreal, four hours from New York City, and only a stone’s throw from a lot of other fun farms.
We do require an in-person work interview.Compensation this position is : hourly, under $15/hr Application instructions
