Hiring: Crew Members – Red Fire Farm
Red Fire Farm, a leader in organic veggie production, is looking for healthy, happy, hardworking individuals to join its power crew of harvest supervisors in beautiful Montague, Massachusetts this season. Candidates should have at least a year of previous farming experience and must be passionate about changing the food system.
Red Fire has 100 acres in cultivation. We grow just about every veggie that can be grown in this climate; this season we’re expanding our operation to include ginger, shitakes and tree fruit. Our main business is CSA: we have 1,500+ members around the state. But we also sell produce at our farm stands, farmers markets and to wholesale customers big and small, including Wegman’s supermarket chain. We are dedicated to a seriously high quality product and hold a deep belief in organic practices. We’re a large production farm with the heart and soul of a tiny operation.
We hire only domestic workers on our farm and many members of our crew tend to be recent graduates from the five colleges in the Pioneer Valley. It’s a warm, wonderful family. This is a farm where you can take on a good deal of responsibility fairly quickly, if you want it; you can grow into a leadership position and have a real stake in helping us refine the work we do. Our goal is to make this farming thing truly sustainable — for everyone involved!
Please send a letter of interest and a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Starting pay is $10/hr plus unlimited access to our produce. Year-round work is available. Twice weekly farm lunch is served from June-October.
