Pitchfork Farm is hiring for the 2018 season!
We have a couple positions open for graduating students who would like to start the season later in the spring, but most of our positions are full-time and full-season (if you're headed back to school in the fall it's pretty difficult for us to work with your schedule).
Ideal candidates will have at least 1 season of farming or, comparably, had a job in a fast-paced, team-oriented setting such as working as a restaurant server, line cook, or barista. Students in agriculture based programs are also encouraged to apply.
Field Crew members should expect to work 40-50 hours a week with occasional weekend chores (especially in the peak of the season from late July to mid September), handle mildly strenuous physical activity, and interact professionally with co-workers and customers alike.
Job responsibilities include greenhouse seeding, hand-weeding, transplanting, irrigating, harvest/wash/pack and more. Hourly pay commensurate with experience, and lots of free veggies. We typically run until around Thanksgiving, although these past couple of years it's been more like mid December.
If interested please send a resume and references, and tell us something briefly about yourself and about your interest in this work. If your interest level is high, we'd encourage you to try to get down to the farm this winter/spring (there's lots going on, even with snow on the ground!) and work with us for a few hours. It gives us a better opportunity to chat, and for you to get a feel for the type of work we do.
