Land’s Sake Farm in Weston, MA is looking for crew members to join our team for the 2021 season! We have both full-time and part-time positions available and may have some flexibility on start-date for the right candidate.

We run a 20 acre diversified vegetable operation, 300 member CSA, market stand, and robust food donation program. Additionally, we host an array of educational programs and have a long-standing forestry management operation. Field Crew members will work closely with the LS team to help run a complex community farm operation. We also occasionally work with volunteers, workshares, and children in education programs. We strive to make Land’s Sake a welcoming, community-centered farm for all involved, including customers, shareholders, children, volunteers, and staff.

Part-time position: Mid May-End of September:16-20 hours/week (2-3 days)
Saturday Hours May be Required
Applicants should have a genuine interest in learning about sustainable agriculture. Field crew members are expected to work quickly while maintaining attention to detail. Working efficiently, independently, and with a team are equally important. Field crew can expect to work long hours in all weather conditions. Many of the tasks we carry out on a regular basis are repetitive and physically demanding. Applicants with a strong work ethic and positive attitude will succeed in this role.
The work day starts at 7 AM sharp and goes through about 5 PM with an hour break for lunch. There may be occasional exceptions to end times when we need to complete work before a weather event, and there may be times when we cancel work due to hazardous weather.
Free produce from farm and discounts on farmstand goods
Field work (harvesting, planting, and weeding)
Miscellaneous tasks, such as tomato trellising, fencing setup, and irrigation
Greenhouse tasks (seeding, watering, and potting up)
A sincere interest in sustainable vegetable production and a positive attitude are a must. Being flexible, open-minded, and engaged are equally as important. While previous farm experience is preferred, it is not required. The physical nature of our work necessitates that all employees are able to lift 50lbs repeatedly and work for long periods of time doing repetitive tasks. Applicants should have a reliable form of transportation and ability to arrive at work on time. Preference will be given to applicants who can work the full term of the position.
To apply, please send a cover letter and your resume to Brendan@landssake.org
