We are looking for 5-6 part-time crew members to join us in the fields at
Land's Sake Farm in Weston, MA this upcoming 2012 farm season.
- The positions start in the last week of May with a probable end in the
first week of September and the possibility of continuing into the fall as
a harvest crew member.
- The hours of work will most likely be from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (we
are open to changing start time based on the crew's preferences--traffic
can be difficult at that hour) from either Sunday through Thursday, or
Tuesday through Saturday.
- Pay will range from $8.50/hour to $11/hour, depending on experience,
speed, etc. There is the possibility of pay increases based on evaluation
of performance by our crew leader and the farm manager. You also get free
veggies from the farm and a discount on honey, bread and fruit from our
- This is a good first step for those who are looking to check out
vegetable farming in general, or who are interested in future work at
Land's Sake in particular. One of our 2011 weeding crew members is
returning to Land's Sake as a first year Assistant Grower this season!
This will mainly be a* *weeding and planting position, emphasis on the
weeding come July. If we are in a pinch, we often ask the field crew to
join our harvest crew, especially come August. We do prefer some farming
or outdoor work experience, though we are willing to train the right
person. The job requires a strong back, good/tolerant knees, speed and a
good sense of humor. This can be very hard, very tedious work, though it
is rewarding. We have a great team-work oriented crew, and like to have to
have fun in the fields!
It is preferable that you have either your own transportation or a
dependable way to get to the farm. Bikes and trains count, as long as you
can get to work on time!
If you are interested, please contact Melanie Hardy, Farm Manager, by
emailing mela...@landssake.org or calling our office at (781) 893-1162. I
can also connect you to folks who have worked on our weeding crew, if you
are looking to hear what the experience was like.
