Looking for an Orchard Assistant in 2017!

Rachel Henderson

We are seeking an orchard assistant for this summer, June-October minimum, but prefer an earlier start date.  Approximately 30 hours/week -- availability on Fridays is essential, other hours are somewhat flexible.  Room and board are available.  We have about 5 ½ acres established with mixed fruit that has been certified organic since 2016, and a new orchard block of apples.

Tasks include

  • Harvesting -- raspberries and currants in July; plums, grapes, and apples in August; apples, pears, and raspberries in Sept-Oct.

  • Sorting, packing, and preparing fruit for farmers market, CSA share, co-op, and restaurant sales

  • Care of newly planted trees

  • Weeding and mulching

  • Pest monitoring

For someone interested in organic fruit production, we can offer opportunities to learn and be involved in other aspects of orchard management.

Orchard/Fruit experience not required, but some farm/ag experience preferred.  Candidates must be able to work outside for 8 hours/day in various weather conditions, lift and carry 20-25 pounds frequently, and lift up to 40-50 pounds occasionally.  Harvesting berries involves kneeling/squatting/sitting for long stretches.  Harvesting tree fruit may require some ladder use.
