Feel like getting dirty with us?
We offer many worker share postions from June-October. Worker Shares will help with lots of fieldwork, mostly weeding, but some seeding, planting, trellising, harvesting, etc. too!
Squashington is a small-scale, certified-organic, CSA , wholesale, and farmers market farm. Much of what we do is by hand, with non-mechanized tools. We recently purchased our own farm (!) so will be expanding slightly from our 3-acre production. Our farm is very dynamic, diverse, and ever-evolving. We are looking forward to hiring at least three part-time crew members from April - October to join our team to grow healthy, nutritious, high-quality food for our community. We want to foster a happy and healthy work environment and would love to retain committed employees long-term.
*We are also in the process of applying to be part of the Organic Vegetable Farm Manager Apprenticeship Program through FairShare CSA Coalition. If interested in participating, please indicate this in your statement.
**Another exciting opportunity for someone with prior experience looking for full-time employment is in the works! We can partner with Atoms to Apples to "share" an employee. This means the qualified individual gets experience on a veggie farm as well as an organic apple/mixed fruit orchard! If interested, please indicate in your email**

Things We Expect
We LOVE Worker Shares.
This is ideal for anyone who wants to get dirty and sweaty, get a free work out, or anyone who has spare time (and maybe less spare money) and wants to spend their time outside working with us!

We welcomed our first child in April of 2022. We were so lucky to have a team of wonderful "sitter-shares" to help us through that HUGE transition. This year, she will be walking and talking and we know we will need even more help!
This is where you can come in! If you enjoy children, babies, entertaining little ones and making sure they don't die, you might be perfect!
This position is much like our Field Worker Share position expect rather than helping with field work, you will keep an eye on our little nugget, Hazel! A four-hour shift will get you a box/bag of produce! She is a super fun, pretty chill, funny, and out-going little kid.
