Williamstown Part-Time CSA helper We are in search of a reliable and energetic individual to help with our CSA pick up on Mondays from 2 PM until 6:45 PM from Monday, May 29th through Monday, November 13th. This job entails helping our CSA manager set up distribution, which requires lifting 40-pound crates and keeping stand stocked for the pickup hours (3:00-6:00 pm). CSA helper is a great job for a college student who attends Williams College or another person looking for extra work. This position could also tie into Tuesday deliveries to NY and CT.
Delivery Driver We are seeking a delivery driver for our Tuesday Deliveries to Connecticut and New York deliveries. The drive is three hours each way. Our produce gets delivered to office buildings for the office cafeterias, and we also have CSA members who receive weekly boxes. It is a 9 to 10 hour day. Applicant must have a valid drivers license, be able to lift 50 pounds, friendly, and reliable. The delivery driver is a part time position. If an applicant is also interested in fieldwork, then more hours may be available.
SUMMER CREW POSITION DESCRIPTION:
Starting date - May/June
Ending Date - September to November
Monday through Friday 7:30 am until 4:30 pm. Saturday hours are for May, June, and July. Employees may be on call for frost risks in the early spring.
As a part of the Mighty Food Crew, you get to work outside and enjoy the scenic views from our fields. Working here gives you a chance to learn how to grow food and make new friends at the same time! We value our employees here at the farm and work hard to create a pleasant atmosphere for you to come to.
Summer crew members assist in almost all the tasks involved in growing fresh, organic produce. Crew members responsibilities include seeding, transplanting, watering, weeding, harvesting, washing, and packing. We are looking for individuals to also help with CSA distributions in Williamstown on Mondays (2-6:45 pm) (May 29th through November 13th)
Crewmembers are expected to arrive on time with appropriate work gear (we work in all weather!), a positive attitude, and an eagerness to mesh with the farm crew to create an efficient workforce. We have many crewmembers returning year after year.
Compensation includes a starting wage of $10/hr and all the veggies from the farm. More experienced farm hands (i.e. tractor experience more than one year on a vegetable farm etc.) will have a higher starting wage. Positions are available starting in May and can continue through September or October. Short-term positions are available for June, July, and August. Sorry, no housing is available.
"I've been a huge fan of Mighty Food Farm since I joined their CSA three years ago. Mighty Food Farm provides an abundant supply of delicious, nutritious vegetables right through February. Unlike many other CSA's, MFF members are able to pick and choose from a wide variety of vegetables each week. My health improved dramatically when I began to get most of my food from MFF. I highly recommend membership in their CSA!" —Kathleen Breault, CNM, New York
