Job Categories

Retailing - Working in retailing requires good customer service skills, an interest in selling, a friendly, outgoing personality, and the ability to run a register and count money. Jobs in retailing would include our General Store, Admissions Booth and Fudge Kitchen.

Custodial - Our custodian jobs include responsibilities such as wiping down tables, checking trash cans, watering flowers, picking up litter and cleaning restrooms. Custodians, especially the ones that work in the maze, are frequently asked questions by customers. Custodians need to be familiar with the farm and its attractions and be friendly towards customers. They also need to be organized, systematic, and pay attention to details.

Attendant - Attendants work in areas like our pumpkin slinger, pedal karts, hay chute slide and jump pillow. Attendants need to be good at working with small groups of people, providing them with instructions, and keeping an eye out for safety.

Food Service - Our food service areas require a range of abilities. For example, the Lemonade stand does not require abilities in cooking. Making the lemonade is a simple but specific process. The Home Cookin Café, on the other hand, requires the ability to make wraps, burgers and fries. For this job category we look for friendly employees, who are able to pay attention to the details of how something is made. They may be required to count money and run a register.

Public Speaking - Our public speaking jobs include maze guides, Farm Ed Center attendants, and our host maze master. These jobs require an ability to speak in front of groups of 20 or more people. Individuals in these positions need to be able to project their voices, be outgoing, enthusiastic and love working with people. They also need to be able to memorize a short presentation and/or facts about the farm.

Instructor - In the fall we will be looking for individuals who are willing to work part time in our School Tour program. These individuals need to love children, be willing to teach short lessons and learn facts about farming. This is a great job for moms, retired teachers, bus drivers, etc.
