Mayneland Farm is currently filling 2017 farmhand positions for Mid-August through the end of October only. If you're looking for a friendly work place and can handle physical exercise in an outdoor environment, please contact us via email or by phone to set up an interview. All positions are part-time and scheduling is flexible. Please let the farmer know any time constraints you may have when you apply. If you have gardening, retail, or previous farm experience, please mention it when inquiring. Although most positions will be for field work, we do have an active farmstand and appreciate flexible staff. If you are unable to join us this spring, the late 2017 season applications begin in summer.
Our part-time jobs offer flexible hours and are ideal for anyone: Students, retirees, freelancers, or stay at home parents! During the spring, summer, and fall, until our closing in October, the work involves cultivating and nurturing the soil, planting both seeds and transplants, protecting the plants from pests such as weeds, disease and insects, harvesting and the preparation of the produce for sale. Retail work is also available selling what we've grown at the farmstand. Both farmstand and field positions require the ability to comfortably lift 40-50 pounds, with the majority of the work done while standing or bending.
