Muddy River Herbals is a small herb in Canton, Mass, just outside of Boston. We are seeking farmhands with at least one solid season of experience under their belt for part-time work (8 hours a day on Fridays and Saturdays, now through October/early November). We need help weeding, planting, making beds (BCS experience a plus!), harvesting, foraging, CSA picking and packing, and other general farm work. There may also be opportunities for work processing herbs into value-added products such as salves, tinctures, shrubs, and more.
Be able to lift 75+ pounds repetitively on a regular basis.
Be willing to work in cold, hot, and rainy conditions.
Have stamina and resolve. We are a small farm but we have low automation. It is hard, physical work.
Be punctual and professional.
Have reliable transportation to and from the farm (which is unfortunately not reachable via public transit) and the ability to make deliveries into town. (Deliveries made in an employee's car will be compensated by the mile.)
Starting wage is $12.50/hr, plus all the herbs you could ever dream of.
Applicants should reply to this email with a resume and brief paragraph about why you're interested in working with us.
