About: Stonewood Farm is a small, certified organic vegetable and flower farm in Millbrook, New York.

Description: We are looking for two or three full and/or part-time Farm crew members. Crew members will assist with most aspects of production and distribution. Tasks include, but are not limited to, the following: greenhouse production, transplanting, direct seeding, irrigation, fertility management, cultivation, harvesting, washing/packing, attending farmers markets, and maintaining chickens for eggs. We operate as a small team so everyone participates in a variety of tasks and pitches in wherever needed. Opportunity for advancement as experience is gained and proficiency is demonstrated. Hourly pay rate is $10.40 to $13.00 based on experience. Housing not included but may be available.

Experience/Skills Desired: All applicants are expected to have the ability and willingness to work outside in all weather conditions.

We seek individuals who are enthusiastic and have a great work ethic and a desire to learn organic and sustainable growing methods. Farming is both physically and mentally challenging.
