Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is looking for employees who are...
- Team Players
- Excited about working with people
- Willing to learn new skills
- Ages 14 & up
Our seasonal part-time and fulltime opportunities give the perfect flexibility for all ages. We are currently looking for employees ages 14 years and up. We are a great place to work for students, moms, retired folks, teachers and others in search of a fun part time job.
We offer competitive wages, yearly increases, company picnic, fun working environment, flexible hours and days, and great customerservice skills training.
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 giant 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.
Entertainment - Our actors work primarily at the Pig Races, though other smaller shows may occur on our Discovery Barn Stage (specific to any given year). Actors must be willing to attend extra rehearsals, memorize lines and blocking, and present an engaging show to the audience.
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.

What our Employees have to say about working at Cherry Crest...
"This was my first year working at Cherry Crest, but I felt at home here very quickly. The staff and managers make it a very positive and energetic environment to work in. Working in the Farm Education Center, I loved answering all sorts of questions about agriculture and interacting with guests from all over the U.S. and the world. I was also thankful to find a job that would not require me to work on Sundays! I highly recommend working at Cherry Crest!"
"Over the years, I have worked as several different places over the summer months. I had only worked for a short time at Cherry Crest during this past fall, and immediately realized that I wanted to continue here for many more seasons. The many different activities, including the classes that I helped teach, were very interesting and I even learned a few new things! I was very impressed with the many different families that work together here, and also with the fact that every morning the crew begins with a staff meeting that also includes prayer time! "
I love working at Cherry Crest because it is just one giant tight-knit family. I hear my friends complain about having to get up to go to their job at the mall, grocery store, etc. But all the people I talk to love working at Cherry Crest, and actually are excited to come to work. Most people get excited for their last week at work before they head off to college, but for me it's really upsetting knowing I won't be with these people again till the next summer, as we really become a big family.
"Cherry Crest Adventure Farm is one of the best places to work at. Everyone is so friendly and you make a lot of new friends.... The managers are really nice too and are so "down to earth"."
- M. Shenk
"There are so many great things I could say about working at Cherry Crest Adventure Farm! I really enjoy being outside in the summer and fall and when I'm working at Cherry Crest I am outside almost all the time. I also really like working for Jack and Donna Coleman, they are some of the nicest people I have ever worked for! All the other employees are extremely nice and fun to work with. Speaking of fun, working at Cherry Crest isn’t like other jobs; I always look forward to coming into work and having a good time while getting my responsibilities done. All in all I would say that Cherry Crest is an awesome place to work and I would recommend working there to anyone who is looking a great job!"

What Parents Have to Say...
"Cherry Crest was a great place for our kids to work this past summer. We loved knowing that they were in a safe working environment. They loved their jobs, working outside and working with lots of other people their own age and older. It was great knowing that our kids looked forward to going into work. Thank you for making this such a positive experience for them."
- S. & S. Lincoln
"My kids have worked at Cherry Crest for the past four years. It has been a wonderful experience for them. I'm especially grateful for CCF management's commitment to help these kids become better employees. Our boys have developed skills that will benefit them, not only during their years of working on the farm, but in their future careers as well. I've been so impressed with the integrity of the CCF management. Seeing how a business is operated well has been a valuable learning experience for our kids. As a parent, I value what they are learning as CCF employees as much as they value their paychecks!"
