About Hutchins Farm:
Hutchins Farm is looking for candidates for a new position to help manage our 8 acres of certified organic apples and one acre of certified organic blueberries. We are seeking a motivated, inquisitive and reliable individual to step into a management role over the 2019 season with the assistance and guidance of the other managers at Hutchins Farm.
Apples: Management of the apple orchards comprises four major tasks during the 2019 season – pruning during the winter, mechanical application of organic spray materials during the spring and early summer, mowing in the summer and fall, and harvest of the crop. The Manager will receive assistance for the labor-intensive tasks of pruning and harvest, but will be ultimately responsible for the efficient management of these jobs.
The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in organic perennial fruit and vegetable production. The position will require a considerable amount of independent work and decision-making, so candidates must be reliable, responsible and have the ability to communicate well with the other managers at Hutchins Farm both to receive instruction and critiques, and to provide relevant information to the other managers about the perennial fruit operation.
Compensation will be commensurate with experience. Compensation will also depend on what kind of supplementary responsibilities the applicant would like to assume in the vegetable production operation during the periodic lulls in perennial fruit management.
