Fieldworkers - Drumlin Farm
Drumlin Farm is a Mass Audubon wildlife sanctuary and working educational farm located 18 miles west of Boston. We seek hard-working individuals with an interest in local food systems and sustainable agriculture to join our team for the 2021 season in a full or part-time capacity. At Drumlin Farm, we are committed to farming sustainably, which to us means protecting the soil, watershed, and the habitats of our wildlife sanctuary, while also involving the community in what we do. To learn more about our farming practices, please visit our website: www.massaudubon.org/drumlin/farming
Fieldworkers work closely with Drumlin’s farmers to raise crops on thirty-six acres and market our produce through a farm stand, a weekly urban farmers’ market, restaurant accounts, and a spring, summer and fall CSA program. Additionally, 12-15% of all we produce supplies three local hunger relief organizations. You’ll work hard as part of our team, but you’ll also learn a lot and have a chance to teach others by working alongside volunteers and work-share members. You’ll spend most of your time in the field and may also assist with farm stand and CSA setup and breakdown, and with the washing and packing of produce.
