We are a horse-powered vegetable farm in the hills of central Maine. Each season, we grow ten-acres of MOFGA Certified Organic vegetables that we sell to coops and small grocery stores across the state. While we take particular joy in the search for the perfect carrot, our diverse offerings allow us to have produce for sale winter, spring, summer and fall. We take great pride in the quality of our produce, and the care we take of our land and animals. We also believe strongly in the power of sarcasm, a cold beer after a hot day, and the overwhelming satisfaction of work you really believe in.

From the greenhouse, to the field, to the pack shed-- employees will be knee deep (hopefully not) in the day to day operations of our organic farm. These folks can expect their work to be varied, and should be comfortable working alone or in a group.

Monday through Thursday, days start between 6 and 7am and end between 5 and 6pm. Fridays are half days and usually end around 1pm. Experience working on a farm isn't necessary, a strong work ethic and a positive attitude are a must. While rewarding, the days are long and the work can be tedious.

Positions start the first week of May and wrap up at the end of October, with the opportunity to stay later for the right individual.

Compensation: $12/hr and all the veggies you can eat!
Housing is not included.
