Help Wanted: Current Employment Listings

(We are waiting until the risk of spring freeze has past on May 15 before hiring due to uncertainty)

NOTE: Our employment season is mid-July through Thanksgiving. Unfortunately the apple season does not dove tail with the school year. Labor day is when we get very busy and on through October. There are no positions for just summer work. Which is too bad because there are very interesting people who ask to work here during August.

That said: In general we try to have a good time and earn the sense of accomplishment from a good day's work. We try to eat well and stay hydrated. The view is fantastic and interesting people are all around.

Here is a link to the Contact form - Please type a bit of info about yourself and send a good email address and/or phone number.

Berry Picker - (starting July 10th) Picking raspberries is a sport of love. Picking them fast and accurately is farming. The blueberries and raspberries need picking almost every morning from when the berries are dry until the heat of the afternoon (9:00-2:00?). This type of picking is a noble act and good for the soul. Eleven dollars per hour, W2.  More pay and longer employment possible, depending on experience and temperament.

Events Coordinator - Are you a person who can use email, phone and texts to coordinate a large volunteer force, greet and habituate the eager helpers, schedule and manage performers, parties, events and maybe a wedding or two. If so this is a great opportunity to show your chops.

Unicorn - This job entails dressing like a two-legged handsome unicorn and proudly strutting around the orchard on weekends. Any unemployed actors out there?

Drop Pickers -  We constantly pick up, sort and use all of the ground apples in the PYO areas. Weekends and some weekdays all season.
