They also sell produce at their farm stands, farmers markets, and to wholesale customers big and small, including Wegman’s supermarket chain. They are dedicated to a seriously high quality product and hold a deep belief in organic practices. Red Fire is a large production farm with the heart and soul of a tiny operation.

Packing Shed Assistant
Red Fire Farm is looking for strong, enthusiastic and detail-oriented candidates tow ork in the central nervous system of the farm: the packing shed. If you’ve got muscle (or are looking to build some), want to work in a fast-paced, dynamic environment, and like the idea of being the last set of eyes on hundreds of pounds of produce each day, please apply! This position will work closely with the packing shed supervisors to enforce quality standards, ensure items are properly allocated, labeled, and prepared for delivery on the next day’s trucks. Everything havested on Red Fire’s 100 acres passes through the shed before its final destination. This job is based at the Montague farm.
Full time, Monday – Friday, 7 am – 6 pm with a one hour lunch break.
Pay for both jobs is $10/hr, plus unlimited access to our produce, and weekly farm lunch served from through October. Please send a letter of interest, and a resume with three references to firstname.lastname@example.org.
