Medway Community Farm Hiring Growers

Medway Community Farm is a non-profit farm with a busy farming operation and with robust educational programming.  The farm cultivates seven acres of non-contiguous land using organic growing methods to provide veggies for a CSA program, on-site farm stand, local farmers markets, and wholesale accounts.  MCF is connected with Medway schools providing in-school programming for second and third graders, and on-farm programming for fourth graders.  During the season, the farm operates a summer program where kids can continue their nature-based education. In addition, we offer several community events that allow our continued commitment to the communities the farm serves.

We’re seeking growers for our full time, seasonal positions.

Responsibilities will include greenhouse chores, harvesting, and washing, tending the farmstand, all manner of handwork from rock picking to hoeing, setting up and breaking down farmers markets, interacting with kids and the public.
