2015 Summer and Fall Apprenticeship at Siena Farms
We are seeking hardworking, high-energy, positive individuals who are motivated by a career interest in sustainable agriculture to join our 2015 summer and fall team. We are a 75 acre diversified vegetable farm that does a large CSA, as well as market and wholesale accounts in the Boston area. We are located half an hour west of Boston. Apprentices are paid hourly, starting now through the beginning of July, and working until the middle of December.
Our apprentices participate in all of the farm’s daily operations, including production, harvest, and retail. This traditional, hands-on apprenticeship provides the opportunity to be an integral, productive part of our fast-paced, for-profit farm. Apprentices gain knowledge, farming skills, and professional work-experience to help them prepare for the next steps in their farming careers.
Hours range from 50-60 hours per week, 5 days per week. Applicants should be prepared to lift upwards of 50lbs repeatedly and work in all weather conditions. Compensation includes hourly wage, a CSA share, and employee discounts at Siena Farms South End, and our partner restaurants Oleana, Sofra, and Sarma. We do not offer on-farm housing.
