Leaning Birch Farm is looking for hard-working crew members to assist in the 2022 season. We are interested in finding people who are passionate about growing high-quality, nutritious food and cut flowers. While you do not have to have prior experience on a farm, it is helpful because you will already know a bit about 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.
Preference is given to applicants who are approaching market gardening as a possible career path as well as those with more experience as farm crew members. While workers will be involved in many aspects of the farm, those with more experience may have the opportunity to specialize in their area of interest, such as high tunnel management, seeding and propagation, marketing, etc. For the right people, there are possibilities for multi-year learning opportunities and continuing in advanced positions in future years. Loyalty and commitment to the farm’s ongoing success are highly valued and rewarded.
Due to the nature of farming, hours may vary over the course of the season. We often adjust start/ending times based on the weather and time of season. Occasionally, longer days may be necessary in order to complete all the tasks required to bring our crops to market on time.
If you are interested in applying for a position on our farm, please complete this short application. We will be in contact with you soon.
