AGRICULTURAL WORKERS

We are hiring exceptional individuals to work in our AGRICULTURAL DEPARTMENT:  planting, watering, growing, weeding and harvesting our Fruits, Berries, Herbs and Vegetables for our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program and to sell in the Farm Stand.  This is a very physical job for someone who is in peak physical condition and able to lift at least 40 lbs.  It is NOT  for the “Faint of Heart”.  You will be working full days outdoors in all weather conditions in all New England Seasons: Cold, rain or heat during Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.    We are looking for energetic, dependable, self-motivated, hard working individuals with a love of the outdoors and agriculture.    Farm or CSA experience is a plus.

How to Apply:  Send letter of interest to:  ATTN: Agricultural Manager via email to: Agriculture@smolakfarms.com

 

ICE CREAM STAND SCOOPERS

The Fall (September & October) is our busiest time of the year.  If you’re looking for a “Summer” job, this probably isn’t the right position for you, as we have plenty of returning college kids during the summer months, and rarely hire anyone who can only work the summer season.  We are looking for individuals who are available Spring, Summer & Fall.

Anyone hired to work in the Ice Cream Stand must be able to commit to working on weekends and at least 1 weekend evening (Friday, Saturday or Sunday).  The Ice Cream Stand is busiest during weekends.  If you are not available for weekend shifts, this is not the right job for you!  You must be at least 16 years old and able to work evenings until 10:00 PM with reliable transportation.  Ideally you are completing your Sophmore or Junior Year of High School.  This is NOT for Seniors who are leaving for college in August when we need you the most for Fall Weekend Festivals.  Local College Students with Weekend Availability are welcome to apply if your schedule permits it.

We are very selective with our hiring!  The positions fill up quickly.  We hire before the season begins.  Ideal Candidates:

  • Friendly
  • Outgoing
  • Smile Often
  • Very Polite  with Exceptional Manners
  • Courteous
  • Greet customers with enthusiasm & sincerity
  • Quick & efficient when filling orders
  • Self Motivated
  • Energetic
  • Strong Work Ethic
  • Take Initiative
  • Dependable
  • Trustworthy
  • Positive
  • Team Player

 Scooping ice cream on a busy day is hard work! 

Before you apply though, a few points to consider:

  1. If under 18 years old, you’ll need your parents’ approval to apply for the job.
  2. If under 18, you’ll need to obtain a working permit from your school once you’re offered a position.
  3. You must have reliable transportation.
  4. You need to be available for at least one day, one weeknight, and one weekend night shift each and every week throughout the summer.
  5. You need to commit to being available to work during all holiday weekends (Patriot’s Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Columbus Day).
  6. You need to commit to staying with us April through the end of October, unless you specifically tell us otherwise during the interview process.
  7. If your schedule is overcommitted with sports, vacation plans or extracurricular activities, you would not qualify for the position.

How to Apply:  Send Resume & Cover Letter to:  ICE CREAM STAND MANAGER via email to: IceCream@smolakfarms.com.  

Include in your cover letter :  “Why you want to work at Smolak Farms.”

No phone calls or walk-ins please.  If you are qualified for the position, you will be contacted by the Hiring Manager to set up an interview.  Please DO NOT send your parents to inquire about a job on your behalf or to call or pick up an application for you. This will automatically disqualify you.  We are hiring you, not your parents.  We expect you to be responsible and take the initiative to apply for the job on your own.
