- Job type Full-Time
Working at Tracie's Farm is a great opportunity to learn a wide variety of skills and responsibilities on a farm and your work will be diversified. We love to teach and are excited to work with people who have a great work ethic, love to learn, are responsible and quick learners.
Besides an hourly wage, crew members receive a full share of veggies, one paid day off during the season, and lunch is provided Monday through Friday. The crew takes turns cooking lunch in our outdoor kitchen. Our hours are generally Monday through Friday, 7am to 430pm with a paid coffee break and an unpaid 45 minute lunch. We currently do not have housing available unless you want to live in a tent or a very rustic barn loft.
We are a fairly rural town but only 30 minutes to Keene, NH, and 45 minutes to Brattleboro, VT or Northampton, MA. There are loads of hikes, bike trails, ponds, rivers, and lakes to explore in our area. Our farm hosts 2 or 3 community potlucks a season where we utilize our wood fired pizza oven and bonfire space! Come join our community!
Our second opportunity is very unique. The current Farm Managers will be moving on after the 2017 season comes to close. We are hoping to hire one person this season to train with the current managers in order to take over management of the farm for 2018. This will be a co-manager position with a returning crew member. Managers will be responsible for all aspects of the
farm including marketing, advertising, record keeping, membership, finances, crop planning, seed ordering, planting, maintenance, harvest, CSA management, and crew hiring. 2 or more years of farming experience are desired.
It is a unique opportunity and arrangement with the owner. Email for more information and details. Compensation this position is : hourly, under $15/hr Application instructions
