Team Players Wanted!
Seeking mature and responsible individuals who would like
to join us for the 2019 season.
Lockbriar Farms is a family owned and operated 20-acre highly diversified small-fruits and heirloom vegetable farm tucked outside of the historic Eastern Shore town of Chestertown, Maryland. A key to our 30 years of success has been our strong loyalty and commitment to and from our family and community. Learn more about what we do at Lockbriar and apply below!
Each year we cultivate our land in intensive succession plantings of vegetables, tend to several acres of small-fruit orchards, keep our seasonal greenhouse and high tunnels flourishing, seed and propagate fields of cut flowers, care for raised-bed perennial and annual herb gardens, and operate a daily on-farm destination experience. We also travel to several weekly area farmer’s markets and keep various wholesale accounts up and down the Eastern Shore.
2019 holds a unique opportunity for enthusiastic individuals to join our team! We are offering various full-time and part-time, on-farm and off-site positions up and down the Eastern Shore, including:
Newark, DE, Chestertown, MD, and Kent Island, MD.
We work hard daily to provide fresh, local products to our surrounding community. Relationship building, customer service and customer satisfaction are key intertwined pillars of our business model!
The summer days are long, but rewarding! Lockbriar relies on building a strong team of hardworking individuals who have positive attitudes and are willing to pitch-in and get the job done right. Being on our team requires someone who will continuously strive to give their best each day! A strong work-ethic and pride in a hard-days work are extremely important characteristics.
We are seeking like-minded individuals who want to learn about all aspects of a successful farm operation, including: planting, harvesting, washing, preparing, packaging, merchandising, marketing, sales, community building, value-added processing, and more!
New team members will be immersed into all of our business divisions, from caring for the land and preparing for farmers markets to helping our customers and serving ice cream. The daily jobs and responsibilities will shift with seasonal demand, as everything in agriculture is cyclical.
Team members will be scheduled as needed, requiring weekend and summer holiday availability. Must have reliable transportation and remain flexible and committed to the team!
