Lewis Creek Farm Job Opening
Posted 5/3/2018

Field Worker, Retail and Delivery

Requirements       Duration       What We're Looking for       Compensation       How to Apply

This person will have the opportunity to do some of everything: Working in the field, helping at the Farmers' Market and our farmstand, washing and packing vegetables, and doing deliveries in our truck. It's an exciting opportunity for the right person. However because of the wide variety of jobs you'll be doing, it has a fairly long list of requirements.

Requirements:
  • You need to be in good health.
  • You must be able to lift 50 lbs.
  • You must have a valid Vermont driver's license
  • You must be able to drive a standard transmission.
  • You must be able to endure extended periods of time standing, bending, stooping, and lifting.
  • You must have some weekend availability. Sometimes Saturday, sometimes Sunday. Not every week. We can be very flexible.
  • You must have weekend availability from May through October.
  • You must be comfortable working with the public at our Farmstand and at the Farmers' Market.

    Special consideration will be given to those who:
  • Have previous on-farm experience.
  • Have experience tractor driving.
  • Have experience driving a truck.
  • Have mechanical or welding skills.

    We're looking for someone who is smart, energetic, cheerful and punctual. You need to have a strong work ethic, a strong back, and a lot of energy.
  • We had a marathon runner, who stopped running marathons because she was getting so much exercise on the farm.
  • We had a competition bicycle racer who thought for sure he would ride his bike the 5 miles to work every day. He was too tired, and took his car instead.
    This is hard work.

    Duration: You'll start in May and must be available full time through August and part time in September and October. Some flexibility.

    Schedule:
  • Deliveries are Tuesdays and Fridays. Those days are important.
  • Weekends are important times for retail. There we have some flexability.
    Beyond that we're talking about a total of anywhere from 30-45 hrs a week depending on your availability and our seasonal needs.

    Compensation: The wage is $12.75/ Hr.
