Mayneland is currently hiring! The positions available require part-time availability through the end of October, early summer-only positions have been filled. The focus will be on people who can assist in our farmstand, although field work may be available as well. 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 Jeremy Mayne, owner, 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. Workers at Mayneland Farm can expect hands on learning experience with the following: Growing and harvesting a large variety of different vegetables and some fruit, how to use select farm machinery, greenhouse and high tunnel production and maintenance, vegetable prep for market, and direct sales experience.
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 35-40 pounds, with the majority of the work done while standing or bending.
