2023 Farm Crew Leader
The Farm Crew Leader is part of the core farm team at April Hill Conservation and Education Center, working closely with the Farm Director and Farm Crew Coordinator. Together we manage approximately 1 acre of primarily annual vegetables, herbs, and flowers with smaller amounts of perennial crops like asparagus, raspberries, strawberries, and pollinators. We primarily work on a hand-scale with limited use of tractors for larger projects around the property. Our food is distributed through organizations in Berkshire County working to relieve food insecurity, through a staff produce share, and a local farmer’s market.
Working on the farm requires working within a collaborative group setting. Some prior farm crew experience is preferred, but this is a great opportunity to gain management skills. A willingness to learn/try new things, a sense of humor and the patience to collaborate with nature is helpful.
