Massachusetts: Apple Street Farm seeks two Apprentices

11 Feb

THIS POSITION HAS BEEN FILLED.

Apple Street Farm in Essex, Massachusetts seeks 2 full-time seasonal apprentices for 2011.

ASF is a new operation of mixed vegetables and livestock, working toward organic certification. We do a small CSA and farmstand on site, and supply produce to our partner restaurants in Boston (L’Espalier & Sel de le Terre).  

Apprentices work from early April to the end of October; pay is $400 a week plus a vegetable share & participation in CRAFT meetings and other education opportunities.

We’re looking for folks who can work hard, lift heavy things, have a valid drivers license, good communication skills and a friendly and enthusiastic spirit.

Previous farm experience is preferred but not required. Apprentices work in all aspects of the farm operation: working with livestock; in the greenhouse; planting, cultivating, and harvesting; tractor work; and interacting with CSA members, our partner restaurants, and the public.

Candidates should send a letter of interest and resume to egreen@applestreetfarm.com.
