There are still jobs around the country to work in farming. Looks like some good prospects in Maine! Maine is a beautiful state. Farm jobs aren’t the horrendous toil that they used to be. They don’t work people to the bone any more on those jobs — you get a lot of free time, you have lots of opportunities to learn and socialize in the surrounding towns.
Such as this job, at one of our favorite farms – Juniper Hill in Westport, NY. Other places to look include MOFGA (Maine), PASA (Pennsylvania) and nation sites like Good Food Jobs (which we partner with).
This is a 9-12 month position depending on candidate. Work involves harvesting and processing of vegetables, including washing, trimming and packing for wholesale and CSA customers.
The perfect candidate is:
- Highly motivated,
- Detail oriented,
- Good humored
- Good communicator
- Must be able to lift 50lb-75lb crates.
