Description

Do you love the outdoors? Are committed to local food? A hard worker and a fast learner? Cropsey Community Farm needs you! We are a certified organic vegetable farm located in New City, NY, seeking fall crew members for harvesting, planting and crop maintenance. Work is 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., with an hour lunch break, 2 to 5 days/week from now through Thanksgiving. Must have a can-do attitude, be willing to work in all kinds of weather, and be physically fit (bend, squat and able to lift 50 lbs or more repeatedly). We prefer applicants interested in pursuing sustainable agriculture as a vocation and those with landscaping or gardening experience.


These positions could lead to full-time employment and advancement for season 2019. Full-time positions available next year are assistant field manager and CSA and market manager with part-time greenhouse or harvest duties. Please inquire even if you are only interested in these positions.


Cropsey Community Farm is a project of Rockland Farm Alliance (RFA), a non-profit organization with a mission to preserve, create and enhance sustainable food production in Rockland County. Our agricultural education programs include our Farm Community Workshops, Junior Farmers Summer Camp, and our Family Farm Days. We host numerous school and youth groups throughout the year.
