Lareau Farm and Forest in Waitsfield, Vermont is looking to fill one more full time Organic Market Gardener position. This work starts immediately and goes until November 1st. Year round work may be available in other departments.


The 25 acre farm is located on the west side of the Mad River and is framed by State and Town Forest reserves. The farm is home to the original American Flatbread restaurant, a twelve room farmhouse inn, a wedding pavilion, a restored 19th c. dairy barn that hosts a series of summer art shows, a Community Garden, and the Mad River Valley Shares Victory Garden and farm stand.



The 2 acre market garden supports the food needs of the restaurant, inn, wedding pavilion, and special philanthropic projects. The garden is managed for nutrient-density and biodiversity. The work is both physically and mentally engaging and includes soil preparation, planting, weeding, harvesting, organic pest management, compost management, lawn mowing, fence building, animal care (pigs, chickens, and turkeys), wood stacking, light carpentry (optional), various small projects, and speaking about the gardens and farm with visitors and guests (the farm hosts several thousand guests each summer some of whom walk through the gardens). Farm work experience and/or academic training in the life sciences are desirable but not mandatory. The ideal candidate will be willing to work one shift a week with our events crew on Saturday evening, to equal four garden days and one event evening each week. 



Compensation includes a base rate of $18/hour with enhanced gratuity pay for event hours, six paid holidays per year, paid sick leave, and some meals. Primitive housing may be available.
