Full Time Crew Member Next Barn Over Farm

  • Date Posted February 02, 2018
  • Location Hadley, MA
  • Category Agriculture
  • Job Type Full-Time
Company Description
Next Barn Over Farm is a 40 acre mixed vegetable farm in Hadley, MA at the foot of the Holyoke Range and near the confluence of the Fort and Connecticut Rivers. We grow over forty different crops, primarily for our on-farm CSA, as well as for off-farm box-shares and a few grocery store and restaurants. We generally work with a crew of seven in the fields as well as a membership coordinator, share room manager, and greenhouse manager (and since each of these exceptional folks tend to pull the weight of two, we manage to get it all done). We come to this work with a deep love of this land, hard work, and sharing vegetables. We believe everyone should have access to healthy, local, sustainably-grown food and we envision our farm as part of a greater movement for food justice and food sovereignty. We think the CSA model is a great way to provide nourishing food, support local farming, steward the land, and act as a gathering place for vibrant community.
