Fall harvest Crew Wanted

cultivating

We are currently accepting applications for fall harvest crew.

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're looking for someone to round out our fall harvest crew. Primary responsiblities will be harvesting with other field tasks as needed including weeding, field clean up, planting etc.

We call this the heavy season so you must be able to lift 50 lbs at a time repeatedly as well as crouch and kneel for long periods of time. You must be able to tolerate high heat, rain, bugs and being dirty all the time. Most of our work is carried out in teams, so crew members must be abe to get along with other, receive verbal orders and repeatedly carry out domonstrated orders effectively and efficiently. .Its a great job for the right person, and a terrible job for the wrong person.

We take our food safety and protecting each other against Covid seriously. Applicants must respect our food safety and covid measures.

Compensation starts at $12/hour plus all the vegetables you can eat plus a great farmers tan, good company, and being outdoors all day.

The work week is Monday-Friday 7-5 with an hour unpaid lunch break. Full or part time with some scheduling flexibility if needed.

Applicants will be contacted over the phone and must complete an on farm working interview.

Please submit your resume, cover letter, and three work references through this link.
