Organic Farm Crew 2018 Ironwood Farm
- Date Posted February 05, 2018
- Location Albion, ME
- Category Agriculture
- Job Type Full-Time
We are a horse-powered vegetable farm in the hills of central Maine. Each season, we grow ten-acres of MOFGA Certified Organic vegetables that we sell to coops and small grocery stores across the state. While we take particular joy in the search for the perfect carrot, our diverse offerings allow us to have produce for sale winter, spring, summer and fall
We take great pride in the quality of our produce, and the care we take of our land and animals. We also believe strongly in the power of a good sense of humor, a cold beer after a hot day, and the overwhelming satisfaction of a well-weeded field.
We have multiple positions open for our farm crew for the 2018 growing season! From the greenhouse, to the field, to the pack shed-- employees will be knee deep (hopefully not) in the day-to-day operations of our organic farm. These folks can expect their work to be varied, and should be comfortable working alone or in a group.
Our crew works Monday through Friday. In May, June, September, October and November, our days run from 7am-4pm. In July and August, 6am-4pm.
Experience working on a farm isn't necessary, but a strong work ethic and a positive attitude are a must. While rewarding, the days are long and the work can be tedious.
While preferably a full time gig, there is also the opportunity for part-time work! There is one position open that begins mid-April and the others start the first week of May. All positions wrap up around Thanksgiving, with the opportunity to stay later for the right individual.
Curious what our days look like? @ironwoodorganic
