Full-time and part seasonal garden positions available

Posted 2/4/2020 11:22am by Farmers.

Holiday Brook Farm is a diverse farm located in central Berkshire county growing organic vegetables, grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured pigs, and laying hens. We make our own hay and compost. We are hiring crew members for the 2020 growing season to assist with our 5 acres of organic vegetable production from April/May through mid-October. We grow a diverse selection of vegetables for a small CSA, a farmers’ market and daily farm stand, as well as local restaurants.

Daily tasks would include seeding (both outside and in our greenhouse), weeding, watering, transplanting, pruning, trellising, mulching, harvesting, washing and prepping vegetables for market, maintaining our farm stand, and assisting at farmers markets. Occasional assistance with livestock will be required (egg collection, food/water, etc).

Applicants will be expected to:

  • Have a minimum of one season of farming experience, preferably with vegetables. 
  • Be in good physical shape and be able to lift 50lbs
  • Be able and willing to work in all weather conditions
  • Have a drivers’ license (experience driving a truck w/trailer a plus!)
  • Be able to take instruction and work productively by themselves or in a group
  • Handle equipment such as a walk-behind rototiller, weedwacker, lawn mower, etc

Along with a resume, please provide us with a brief essay of who you are and what motivates you to want to farm. The days are long, and the work is hard; we want to know why you are the right fit for this environment.
