Position: Farm Assistant
Type: paid full-time position, housing available

Location: Bayside, New Brunswick
Bantry Bay Farm is a certified organic 2.5 acre, 110 share CSA farm looking for a full-time paid employee for the 2015 farming season (Apr-Nov). Also, if you are interested in apprenticing on our farm, please contact us as we have a robust apprenticeship program, and take 2 apprentices per year.
Bantry Bay Farm is a picturesque farm owned by three friends just outside the historic town of St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, NB. Venturing into our tenth year of farming we are growing two and a half acres of mixed vegetables for a 110 share CSA, the St. Andrews Farmer's market, and several local restaurants including The Rossmount Inn and Savour (Family owned businesses aimed at celebrating what can be done with the local bounty of this county). We have five greenhouses/tunnels, a tractor, and 100 acres of hayfields, forest, ponds, and sandy beach - it's only a five minute walk from hard work in the field to a cool dip in the ocean! There are also two friendly horses on the farm, and most importantly.... very few bugs (thank goodness for that ocean breeze)!
