Stillman's is a sustainable fruit and vegetable farm supported by farmers' markets, sales to restaurants, and CSA. Our farm is seeking energetic people to join our team for Boston area farmers’ markets and CSA deliveries. Responsibilities would include assisting loading the truck in the morning, driving the truck from the New Braintree farm to Boston or other location, setting up displays, interacting with the public, interfacing with chefs and restaurant owners, distributing CSA boxes and most importantly, representing the farm. The market/CSA position is mainly May through November but there is always general greenhouse and farm work available if the applicant is interested in making this a full time, year round job.
Applicant must have a valid driver's license, clean driving record, good people skills, ability to lift heavy boxes repeatedly, a great attitude, ability to handle sometimes stressful situations, willingness to learn, and an interest in farming and retail sales. A love of great food and flair for display would be helpful.
Salary will be based on the number of markets or CSA deliveries attended during the week. Employees have access to free produce to take home and will be rewarded with other perks for a job well done. Housing is not provided.
If you aspire to operating your own farm someday, the experience gained here will be invaluable to the profitability of your farm!
If you like produce and people, you’ll love this job!
