Potter Hill Farm Hiring for remainder of 2017 Season
Position: Late Summer into Fall Field Help
Location: 64 Potter Hill Rd, Grafton, MA 01519
We are a no-spray 1.5 acre market garden focused on growing certified organic heirloom vegetables. Laying hens are rotated through the fallow sections of the garden to fertilize for the following season, and we have a few backyard pigs who are a lot of fun. We sell through two seasonal farmers markets, as well as an on-farm pickup via online ordering. Just 15 minutes southeast of Worcester, the farm sits atop a quiet mile-long hill with incredible views of Worcester and Mt Wachusett.
A successful candidate will have the following qualities:
-motivation and a willingness to work hard are more important than farming experience, though experience certainly would be an advantage
-ability to routinely lift 50 lbs, work happily in all weather conditions, and complete a wide range of farm duties carefully and efficiently
-a good sense of humor, collaborative spirit, and the ability to work well independently and with others
-enthusiasm for growing and eating a wide range of vegetables
-passionate about connecting people to their food
Working closely with the farmer, you will be involved in all aspects of annual vegetable crop production and bringing harvest to market. Participation in farm workshops and EMass CRAFT meetings will be encouraged.
Compensation starts at $8 an hour and depends on experience, plus farm produce, eggs, and meat.
