Spring and Fall Work Study

To Apply: Follow directions for the Student Farmers position in Workday. Email mives@amherst.edu with any additional questions.

Logistics:  No farming experience is necessary, but applicants need to be aware that farming is physically demanding. Arrive on time to your scheduled shifts. Be prepared to work in any weather. Students are paid $13.50/hour.

Spring Work Study: Seeding. In the Spring we are setting the stage for the season. Spend your time seeding in the greenhouse, doing some early wash/pack and planting, infrastructure and field set-up. We are looking for attention to detail, focus on repetitive tasks, organization and efficiency. Work one or two three-hour shifts per week, March-May.

Fall Work Study: Harvesting. In the Fall we are in full-harvest mode. There is the twice-weekly greens harvest for delivery to Valentine, the end of season bulk-harvests of storage crops; wash/pack and delivery to Valentine and our CSA program, and field clean up to finish the season strong. The work is physical and the challenge is to balance speed, efficiency and quality control. Work one or two three-hour shifts per week, September-November.
