Red Fire Farm, a certified organic farm in Montague, is hiring packing and field crew. Positions are available immediately. We are mainly looking to hire people who can work 4-5 full days a week, but are open to hiring part time workers.
Red Fire is a dynamic farm, growing diversified veggies and fruit on 100 acres. We deliver CSA shares to about 1600 members across the state and sell at farmers markets, our two farm stands and to wholesale customers around New England.
The work here is hard but fulfilling. We’re committed to an extremely high quality product and we take a lot of pride in what we do.
We have a packing shed position available, which will start at 9 AM, about when the flow of crops from our fields starts to come into the packing shed. The day would be centered around our state-of-the-art packing shed, a new facility that is a joy to work in. The tasks are very detail-oriented and organizational, which provides a fun challenge for the right person. When work in the packing shed is light, some of the crew will move out to the fields to help bring in the harvest.
We are also hiring for our field crew. These position start at 7 AM and the day ends around 5:30 PM. Field crew positions involve long days spent outside no matter what the weather. Our fields are in some of the most beautiful spots in the valley and the crew here is warm and wonderful. Starting pay is $8/hr, and our in-season veggies are also available to the crew. There are opportunities for year-round work, performance-based pay increases and promotion to leadership positions.
Previous farm experience or experience working outdoors is a big plus, but it’s not necessary. Please send a letter of interest and a resume to email@example.com. We look forward to hearing from you!
