Root 5 Farm in Fairlee, Vermont is a 32-acre organic vegetable farmon the banks of the Connecticut River where we grow over 100 different varieties of vegetables and deliver that produce to 400+ CSA members throughout the Upper Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont.

We’ve just begun hiring for our 2023 season and while our farm has been fortunate to have a tight-knit team of enthusiastic farmers for the past ten years, we’re sadly (and excitedly) wishing well to many of our employees as they pursue careers elsewhere or on their own farms and homesteads. As such we have a variety of leadership roles opening up and we’d love to offer new or experienced farmers an opportunity to begin or continue their farming journey here at Root 5.

We strongly believe the future of small, organic farms and resilient local food shelves is dependent on providing possibilities for folks to pursue fulfilling, opportunity-rich careers in farming without the need to start and invest in their own farms. As such we’re committed to providing continued education, room for growth into leadership roles and a continued focus on fair wages, employee benefits, an ever growing “farm family.”

We’d love to start training as soon as possible for:

  • Equipment Operator (full time)
  • Crop Production Assistant (full time)
  • CSA Coordinator & Wash Pack Manager (full time)

Training begins March 1 for:

  • Delivery Driver & Veg Crew (full time/seasonal)

Training begins May 1 for:

  • Vegetable Production Crew (Full time, Seasonal, May-November)
  • Morning Harvest Crew (Part time, Seasonal)
