Foggy Notion Farm is a chemical free farm growing fruits, flowers, and vegetables on 4 acres in Snake Den State Park in Johnston, RI. There are currently three of us and we are looking for one more to help this summer.
Foggy Notion Farm is hiring a farm staff person to help harvest, package and sell produce. This is 15 to 20 hours per week in the summer from June - Sept. We need help Thursdays, Fridays and occasionally on Saturday for the Bristol markets. This requires arriving bright and early to the fields rain or shine, ready to harvest for the first part of the day, and then move to the washroom to clean and package vegetables/fruits and make bouquets. Occasionally we will need help at the farmers markets. We do the Armory Park farmers market on Thursdays from 3-6pm and the Mount Hope Farmers Market in Bristol from 9am-1pm. There will also be a few restaurant orders to fulfill.
Skills Needed for Job:
Experience doing physical labor or exercise on a regular basis. Good at following instructions. Prepared for work outside in all weather. Able to lift 50 lb crates of produce, push farm carts, squat, stand, bend, crawl among the plants while harvesting. Ability to transport themselves to farm in Johnston and farmers markets in Providence and Bristol. For the occasional farmers markets to help from beginning to end, this requires loading the truck, driving, setting up tents, unpacking, setting up the display and selling the vegetables/fruits, and returning everything back to the farm.
