Job Opportunities

Join our team for the 2019 season.

 
 

Work at Anderson Acres Farm is for the tough, diligent, and creative.

We are looking for like-minded people to jump in for the summer on a full time basis. If you enjoy working with your hands, getting out into the sun and soil, and learning about how to grow fresh, beautiful flowers, then this could be a great fit for you. Join our small team and work on a lovely 200-acre property just behind Lake Waramaug where we produce specialty cut flowers.


Daily duties can include but are not limited to: seeding, planting, pruning, weeding, bed prep, flower harvest, bouquet packaging, and deliveries. We are especially in need of folks who are interested in and/or have experience working with flowers or vegetables. We are seeking someone who is available to work weekdays and some weekends, and who is self-motivated and able to work independently. If you enjoy plants and have a flair for design, we want you on our team!

Requirements:

  • Previous work experience, farming and/or floral background strongly preferred--if your background is in design, please send reference pictures.

  • Ability to learn on the job

  • Collaborative attitude

  • Weekend availability

  • A good work ethic and positive attitude

  • Comfortable working around dogs, cats, and chickens

  • Means of transportation, valid driver’s license, and clean history

  • Ability to repeatedly lift 50lbs and general physical stamina


Compensation is $12-16/hr, depending on experience, as well as plenty of flowers, vegetables, and eggs to take home. We are seeking individuals who are interested in the potential for long-term employment and growing into a managerial role. We are currently looking for someone to fill this seasonal position who could start part-time (20-25 hrs/wk) in April, ramp up to full-time (40-50 hrs/wk) by mid-May, and then end the season with us at the end of October. Please send a cover letter and resume to Kat at kat@andersonacresfarm.com.


While we do encourage applicants from all locations to apply, please be aware than an on site interview is required.
