Appelget Farm is a small scale, intensive, highly diversified and community-oriented, organic vegetable farm located in West Windsor,NJ . The farm supports a 50-member farm share program.
We are currently looking for one or two farmers for the 2022 season. Our farmer(s) may be involved with the following aspects of small-scale organic vegetable production: greenhouse work, bed preparation, field planting, cultivation, trellising, pest-management, harvesting, irrigation system set-up, csa share distribution, and management of a small flock of laying hens. Expect a fast-paced work environment with an ever-changing set of priorities to keep our small farm moving efficiently.
At least one year of farming experience is desirable. Must be able to work in all types of weather with an early morning start to beat the heat. Must have a clean driver’s license and pass a background check. Should be a personable, friendly crew member; love working with people, plants and animals; enjoy hard physical labor and be self-motivated.
Compensation: negotiable based on experience. Team members enjoy access to the pick-your-own flower garden and a portion of the harvest. Unfortunately, no housing is available.
