The vegetables managers at Sweetwater Farm are looking for a part-time vegetable helper from June through October. We could also work around a school schedule (June through August). This person would be involved with all aspects of the vegetable operation, specifically helping with harvesting, washing, and packing vegetables for the CSA. There will also be plenty of weeding, bed preparation, and transplanting.
About the Farm
Sweetwater Farm is a diversified farm in Petersham, MA. We raise beef cattle, pigs, laying hens, broiler chickens, and vegetables on 80 open acres. Our beef and eggs are certified organic, and our vegetables are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides or herbicides. We sell our food to The Country Store in Petersham, the Insight Meditation Society in Barre, the Petersham Farmers’ Market, and through our 40 member CSA.
A part-time farm crew member does not need to have any prior farming experience. Priority may be given to experienced applicants, but common sense, a good work ethic, and a positive attitude are more important than anything else.
We look forward to hearing from you!
