Internship information
General Farm Description: Squashington is a small-scale, certified-organic, CSA , wholesale, and farmers market farm. Much of what we do is by hand, with non-mechanized tools. We recently purchased our own farm (!) so will be expanding slightly from our 3-acre production. Our farm is very dynamic, diverse, and ever-evolving. We are looking forward to hiring two part-time crew members from April - October to join our team to grow healthy, nutritious, high-quality food for our community. We want to foster a happy and healthy work environment and would love to retain committed employees long-term. Food is the reason we farm. We love it. Growing it, eating it, and giving it to those we love. It's an incredible job to have. Farming allows us to get outside everyday, use our minds critically and creatively, and gives us freedom to do what we want, and how we want to do it. As farmers, we literally reap what we sow. Our motivation yields bounty, while our short-comings equal loss. It is the definition of a learning process, and every year we learn more and more. We hope to always grow food for ourselves, our friends and family, and our community. Squashington Farm focuses on healthy, sustainable gastronomical choices for our community. Gastroethics.

Internship Details:
We LOVE Worker Shares.
This is ideal for anyone who wants to get dirty and sweaty, get a free work out, or anyone who has spare time (and maybe less spare money) and wants to spend their time outside working with us!
How it works:
  • Worker Shares work 4-hour shifts either weekly (for Full Shares) or every-other week (Half Shares)
  • We send you home with a box/bag full of produce
What to expect:
  • Standing, kneeling, squatting, lifting, walking all four hours
  • Assist us with weeding (mostly), seeding, transplanting, trellising, harvesting, laying landscape fabric, row covering, and more!
  • Working with a wonderful crew of other people. Worker Share days are SO much fun. We have young and mature folks, people who grew up around here and people from far away, students, parents, grandparents, entrepreneurs, crafters, thinkers, and more. It can feel like a real community event.
  • I’ve heard many people say that their first couple of weeks were exhausting. It is hard work, and if you aren’t used to doing physical exertion outside, it can be difficult at first. But you will get used to it! And we don’t expect you to be busting your butt the whole time, so you can pace yourself appropriately.
  • Shifts are 9:00am – 1:00pm Wednesday or Saturday
If you want to be a Worker Share, just sign up for our CSA and make sure to check the “yes” in the “interested in Worker Share” question. Email us if you have questions! You can also fill our our google form: Apply Here
