Describe your farm operation

We are looking for individuals who are excited about science, agriculture, and getting dirty.

Projects for the upcoming season include:

Cold-hardy berry and fruit harvesting
Row-crop variety trial monitoring and harvest
Integrated weed management in organic systems
Maintaining and harvesting flowers and vegetables from our demonstration garden
We seek to provide a work experience that is demanding without being grueling. You may work directly with lead scientists, research associates, fellow seasonal helpers, or independently.

Projects are variable and change throughout the season. Responsibilities between projects may involve landscaping and general grounds maintenance. Occasionally, you will be expected to travel off the farm for work at our associated research sites.

We are in the process of certifying a small section of the farm into organic production. However, the majority of the property is managed conventionally. This means that we occasionally use pesticides but do not require seasonal workers to apply these chemicals.
