We’re looking for a little help…

Leaning Birch Farm is looking for hard-working field workers to assist in the 2021 season.  We are interested in working with people who are passionate about learning what goes into growing their food. While you do not have to have prior experience on a farm, it is helpful because you will already know how much work is involved in farming. It is very gratifying work, but it requires heartiness and a work ethic.  You must be willing to work hard, get dirty, and learn by experience in all weather conditions.

Although the work is hard, we have a great time doing it! Our farm thrives on teamwork and we think we have a pretty great team! If you’re interested in learning more, check out the Employment Opportunities link at the top of our home page.
