Stillman’s Farm is seeking a full time Farm and orchard manager for our diverse fruit and vegetable farm in Central Massachusetts.

Other duties may include assisting with cultivation and harvest of a multitude of vegetable crops, organizing CSA packing and pickup, loading market trucks, seeding or transplanting in the greenhouses or fields, deliveries of plants and produce, and possibly attending a farmers’ market or CSA delivery.
Knowledge of equipment, crop pests, pruning, spray programs, soils, harvesting, and storage is preferred. Understanding of small greens production would be a bonus and could replace the requested knowledge about orchards.
