Massachusetts: Second Nature Farm seeks Assistant Farm Manager

15 Feb

Second Nature Farm is a 6-acre farm in Norton, MA (40 min south of Boston). We grow a diverse selection of heirloom vegetables and fruit, all of which are Certified Naturally Grown. We run a 30-member CSA, and also sell our produce to restaurants and farmers’ markets. The farm is in its third year, and we are continually expanding our infrastructure and expertise with season extension methods so that those interested in eating local food have a greater opportunity to do so.

We’re looking for an Assistant Farm Manager who’s able to work April/May – November, 5 days/week for 8-9 hours/day. The Assistant Manager will be involved in every aspect of the farm and will perfect a wide variety of skills: from field and greenhouse work to the display and marketing of products. This is a great opportunity for those interested in starting their own small farms to learn organic farming methods as well as how to begin and manage a small business. The Assistant Manager should have a strong work-ethic as well as a sense of humor. The Assistant Manager will also be partly responsible for overseeing farm interns – making sure that they perform work correctly and to the farm’s standards.

Compensation is $10/hr as well as free produce from the farm. Preference will be given to those interested in working at the farm for more than one year.

To apply, email adam@secondnaturefarm.com with a cover letter and resume.
