Working on Our Farm
Wise Acres Farm grows 2+ acres of certified organic vegetables and berries for two local farmers’ markets and a CSA program. We have been farming on this land for over five years.
We count on our employees to help us care for our land, operate a financially sustainable business and provide our community with fresh, local, yummy produce.
Our 2017 positions have been filled.
We typically accept applications from January to March for positions that run from May to October. Full-time and part-time positions may be available.
Expectations for all positions:
- Attention to detail, efficiency and ongoing improvement while performing repetitive tasks
- Willingness to take both direction and initiative
- Proactive, honest and constructive communication about work-related information and personal needs
- Ability to do strenuous work outside in all weather conditions and lift heavy items
- Reliability and punctuality
- A positive attitude and a sense of humor and purpose
Employees are paid based on position, experience, and the farm's budget. Our base wage is $10/hour and increases based on experience and performance. We do not offer housing or meals, but we do offer access to our surplus organic produce. We are located 20 minutes northwest of Bangor in a beautiful, peaceful spot.
Applicants are expected to provide a note about why they want to work on our farm, a resume, and, upon our request, references. Final candidates will be expected to complete an on-farm interview including a brief work session.
