Now Hiring at Blue Heron Organic Farm
Blue Heron Organic Farm is looking for farm workers for the 2016 farming season (June, July, and August)!
This will be Ellery Kimball's sixteenth season managing Blue Heron Organic Farm. The farm produces seven acres of diversified annual crops including a large pick-your-own flower garden. Produce is sold from a road-side stand located on the farm, to over a dozen restaurants in the Boston area (twice a week) and to two weekly farmer's markets. Although more a farm job than an internship, workers will learn a variety of skills including: transplanting, cultivation and harvesting. The job mostly involves the cultivation and weeding of crops. We do not use tractors for cultivation so all weeding is done by hand. Workers will also learn other relevant organic farming practices such as crop rotation, soil management, composting, pest and disease control, working alongside groups of volunteers and selling produce at farmer's markets. Employees must have a great sense of humor, be efficient and hard working, have a positive attitude, have good knees and a strong back, be able to lift 50 pounds, work well independently as well as with others and have a passion for organic agriculture and the environment. Workers must also be friendly, positive and helpful with customers, volunteers and children who come to visit the farm. We work in the field rain or shine (100% outside, as there are no buildings on the farm). We do not offer housing.
Blue Heron Organic Farm is looking for part-time workers for June, July, August. To apply please send a resume and cover letter to farmer Ellery Kimball: ellerywk@hotmail.com [www.blueheronfarmlincoln.com] - Ellery will be conducting interviews starting in March. Thank you!

The mission of Blue Heron Organic Farm is to increase the availability of locally produced food and to raise awareness about ecologically sound farming practices. Through selling produce from one of the few remaining organic farm stands in the area, offering a pick-your-own flower garden (as well as PYO raspberries, peas, and cherry tomatoes), guiding volunteers, creating a healthy and fun environment for children and establishing regular community events, Blue Heron Organic Farm aims to promote a deeper sense of community among the residents of Lincoln. Through supplying Boston area restaurants with local Certified Organic produce and donating what we do not sell to soup kitchens and shelters, we involve the surrounding communities as well.
