Full and By Farm

Full and By Farm is a 100 acre diversified farm producing vegetables, grains, beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and maple syrup for our 70 local CSA members. Horses provide much of the draft power for fieldwork. Although not certified, our growing practices typically exceed organic standards, and we subscribe to the most humane of animal husbandry practices. We farm holistically— believing that all aspects of the farm are connected—minimizing outside inputs and producing food for our livestock, "fuel" for the draft animals, and compost for the fruits, vegetables and grains.

Job Description

Our Summer Farm employee will assist with work mainly in the vegetable fields. Tasks include transplanting, weeding, cultivating and harvesting. You can also expect work on occasion with animal chores, rotational fencing, haymaking and butchering. This position runs roughly from June through August or September. A good work ethic and willing attitude outweigh experience. Applicants must be physically fit, have a strong attention to detail, be self-directed and able to stay on task and work quickly.
