Deadline to Apply: 06/30/2021
Featherbed Lane Farm (www.featherbedlanefarm.com), is a draft horse powered, full year CSA located near Saratoga Springs, NY.
We are seeking a Farmer for the 2021 growing season.
The Farmer is a full-time position, salaried at $15/hour for a 40-hour work week. Weekly produce and eggs are also included as compensation. The position begins in April and runs into November, though there may be the possibility of extending the season and/or creating a full year position for 2022. On-farm housing is not currently available, though we’re happy to help with finding accommodations or to consider other creative arrangements.
The primary responsibilities focus on vegetable production, including greenhouse management, field production and harvests, as well as livestock work and assisting with the weekly CSA Pickup. Prior farm experience, while valued, is less important than a good work ethic and attitude, the ability to do very physical work and to work outside during all weather conditions, and a readiness to learn, be effective, have fun and be a part of the farm team. This is a great opportunity for someone exploring farming as a profession or looking to take on a farm management role.
