The Neighborhood Farm hiring Multiple Positions

Dover/Medfield, Massachusetts

Crew leader

The Neighborhood Farm is a 5 acre, all natural vegetable farm on the
Dover/Medfield line.  We lease land from The Trustees and grow produce for
farmers markets, our farmers market CSA and several restaurants.

We are seeking a full time crew leader interested in working on a small
family farm operation.  The crew leader will supervise and work along side
the crew members on all aspects of vegetable, herb and flower production
and harvesting including, planting, weeding, irrigation, greenhouse work,
harvest, washing, packing and selling at farmers’ markets.  Kate and Jude
(the farm owners and managers) will provide direction and instructions,
but the crew leader should be comfortable organizing small groups to work
efficiently and productively.

We are looking for a crew leader with at least one year farming
experience. Candidates should be flexible, productive, easy to work with,
respectful, professional, open minded, and responsible, with a good sense
of humor to see them through the challenges of farming.  The crew leader
must have reliable transportation and a clean driving record.

The work can be physically challenging as we do the vast majority of our
work by hand.  Candidates should be able to lift 50 lbs, repeatedly.  We
will be working outside in all weather conditions.  The hours will vary by
season, but can be long (between 35 and 50 hr/week). Crew leaders will
work a Monday through Friday schedule with Sunday greenhouse duties once a
month. Some schedule changes are possible, but in general the schedule
will be set.

The crew leader position begins in early April, and runs through
Thanksgiving. The crew leader must commit for the entire season.

Compensation: $12/hour, and vegetables from the farm. Unfortunately, we
cannot provide housing.

As a family owned small business, we are committed to helping others
prepare to start their own farming and gardening operations. We love to
work with people who are exploring the possibilities of starting their own
enterprises, and with people who are just looking for more experience in
farming and gardening.

If you are interested, please email Kate and Jude at
theneighborhoodfarm@gmail.com.   For more information about the farm,
