Heron Pond Farm in South Hampton, NH, is seeking a full-time, year-round manager for our farm store. We are a diversified vegetable farm with over 50 acres in production.

We are looking for motivated manager who can help us meet the rising demand for local food in our close-knit community. Candidates should have at least one year of retail experience and a background in food or farming.

All stand staff, including the manager, must be able to lift 50-pound containers of produce.
Our farm store is central to our growth. This position will expand as we implement our strategic plans. We are looking for a candidate prepared to participate in our future.
