Farm Crew Wanted

cultivating

We are currently accepting applications for full and part time crew members.

Provider Farm is a 16 acre vegetable farm based in Salem, CT. We grow mixed vegetables following OMRI organic standards and have a small herd of grassfed beef cattle. We are primarily a CSA farm and our main marketing focus is on our summer and winter CSA, with some wholesale accounts as well. Our farm is a fast paced environment where we strive for quality and efficiency in everything we do. We have quite a few tractors and much of our work is mechanized but vegetable farming requires a lot of hands to get the job done. That is where the farm crew comes in.

We are looking to add to our crew for the 2021 season! Tasks include greenhouse seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, and various other aspects of vegetable production.  Applicants must be able to lift 50 lbs repeatedly; take direction well; perform tasks quickly and efficiently; and work well in a group.  If you enjoy being outside in all weather, physically demanding work, and being part of a team, this is a great job for you!  

Prior farming experience is welcome but not required.  Full time positions are 40 – 45 hours/week (depending on the season), M-F, from April to November.   Part time positions have greater scheduling flexibility, but are typically 15-25 hours/week anytime from May until September. 

For full time crew members with prior experience and/or demonstrated aptitude, opportunities for further training are possible, including but not limited to tractor operation, irrigation, wash/pack, and deliveries.  All positions start at $13/hr; higher wages possible for applicants with the right experience.

To apply, please send a letter of interest and a current resume with 3 professional references by email to Hannah Tripp at provider.farm.csa@gmail.com.
