More Information
Plowbreak Farm, a five-acre diversified vegetable farm located 25 minutes from Ithaca and 10 minutes from Watkins Glen, is looking for seasonal help with planting, cultivation and harvest work. We are a Certified Naturally Grown farm, which means we use no chemicals – no pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers. Our primary markets are CSA and restaurant wholesale.

As we have a very small staff, we see this position as both an educational opportunity in learning to run a small farm as well as a paid position, and applicants should have a well-defined interest in agriculture. Part-time, year-round work may be available for the right candidate. On-farm housing is also a possibility.

Tasks and responsibilities:

Farm staff will take part in nearly all operations on the farm, including but not limited to: early season field preparation, seed starting and greenhouse work, planting, cultivation, harvest and storage tasks.

Qualifications and experience:

The ideal candidate is interested in a career in farming, whether that be owning a farm of their own or pursuing work in agricultural sciences. Work experience on a farm is preferable but interest and a good attitude and strong work ethic is the most important quality in a candidate. We work rain or shine.

Schedule, hours and benefits:

Farm help will work 20-30 hours per week, but exact days and hours are negotiable for the right candidate. Must work on both harvest days and general farm workdays. In addition to their hourly wage, our employees are entitled to free choice produce for household use, and on-farm housing may be available for the right candidate.

Please send a cover letter and resume to plowbreakfarm@gmail.com.
