Fall Field Crew

To finish the 2016 season, Land’s Sake Farm in Weston, MA, is looking for three
enthusiastic, dependable, hard-working, and dynamic folks to join our farm
team as our Field Crew. This is a part-time position that will run from around
the middle of August through the end of October for 2-3 days a week.

Land’s Sake is a nonprofit dedicated to building meaningful connections
between people, the food they eat, and the land; programs include
environmental, food donation programs, and sustainable land management. Field
Crew members will work closely with the farmers to operate a busy and complex
community farm operation. We grow for a 300 member CSA program, a very busy
farmstand, and a hunger relief contract with the town of Weston. We also
occasionally work with volunteers and children in education programs. We
strive to make Land’s Sake a welcoming, community-centered farm for all
involved, including customers, shareholders, children, volunteers, and staff.

Responsibilities include:
●       Field work, such as harvesting and weeding
●       Miscellaneous clean-up tasks, such as taking down fencing and irrigation equipment, sorting storage vegetables, and clearing out various spaces

This position is scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays with the additional
option of Fridays or Saturdays. The nine hour work day would start at 7:00AM
sharp and go through about 5:00PM. We need candidates who
can commit to working the entirety of the time period from mid to late August through October.

Applicants should be enthusiastic about learning, communication, having fun
and working hard. Field crew members are expected to work quickly while
maintaining attention to detail. Working efficiently, independently, and with
a team are equally important. Field crew can expect to work long hours in all
weather conditions; a positive attitude and good sense of humor are essential
to this position.

The work day starts at 7 AM sharp and goes through about 5 PM with an hour
break for lunch, though work hours are shorter the last few weeks of the season.
There may be occasional exceptions to end times when we need to complete work
before a weather event, and there may be times when we cancel work due to
inclement weather.

Compensation includes:
●       $12/hr
●       Free produce from farm and discounts on farmstand goods

Qualifications include a sincere interest in vegetable production, a valid
driver’s license and clean driving record, reliable transportation, the
ability to lift 50 lbs repeatedly, and the ability to work for long periods of
time in all weather conditions. Previous farm experience is strongly
preferred, but not required.

To apply, please send a cover letter and your resume to erik@landssake.org.
Positions open until filled.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions that you might have!
