Hutchins Farm in Concord, MA is looking for full-time Field Crew to help us finish out the 2017 season. Applicants that can start soon and work through the end of October will be given preference, but we can be flexible.
Hutchins Farm is one of the oldest and largest certified organic vegetable and fruit operations in Massachusetts. Organic since 1973, Hutchins grows over 35 acres of vegetables, about an acre of small fruit, and 10 acres of apples. We sell our produce directly to consumers at our farm stand in Concord, MA, and at three weekly farmers’ markets, with a small amount of sales to local restaurants.
The work varies, but will include: planting, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packing a wide variety of vegetables and small fruit. Workers may also be involved in greenhouse work, grounds maintenance, or other aspects of the operation based on the farm’s needs and the worker’s inclination.
Workers will be expected to work 5 days per week, 9-10 hours per day. Applicants should be willing to work at least one weekend day. The workday starts at 7am and usually goes until 4-5pm. Hourly pay begins at $11/hour with a $0.50 per-hour-worked year-end bonus contingent on completion of a time commitment agreement, plus free vegetables from the farm. There is potential for increases for longer term workers based on their performance and the overall performance of the farm. Applicants should be able to lift 50+ lbs repeatedly. Housing is not available.
