Join Our Team!
We are currently accepting applications for the 2022 Season!
Our small but mighty farm is heading into its 19th season, and we're looking for kindred spirits to join in the work, the dirt, the thought, the sweat and the joy of farming on Madison's southern edge.
For all positions, we are looking for individuals who share our commitment to hard work, punctuality, respect for one another, and a drive to continually improve. Our mantras are "We are always moving forward" and "We are all in this together" and these drive our work philosophy and business. We value and reward previous relevant experience in our hiring, and also reward those who hit the ground running with energy and grit.
Open Positions for 2022 and beyond:
Summer Field Crew: (May/June through August/Sept), full-time and part-time positions available. Participate in all aspects of vegetable production for CSA and market from seed to distribution. Hourly Wage $13-$15/hr. based on relevant experience. Plenty of farm veggies included, and PTO for full-time employees. Work hours M-F 8am-4:30pm. Part-time schedule established at time of hire.
Farmers Market Lead Assist the farm owner in running our Market Stand at the Westside Community Market! Great side gig for a early-rising fast-mover with great mental math :).

Farmers Market Staff Help to staff our stand with the farm team at the Westside Community Market! Again--great side gig for a early-rising fast-mover with great mental math.

At Blue Moon we work hard, work smart, and are always looking for ways to improve what we do for the betterment of our community, the environment, our financial sustainability, and our health.

Worker Shares and Barters
Each year we have a group of CSA Worker Share members who work in exchange for their CSA shares. Roles include field work, packing vegetables, CSA distribution assistance, and farmer market staffing.
Interested? Contact Kristen at [email protected]
We also have quite a number of professional services that we barter CSA shares for. If you have a service to offer the farm in trade, we would love to chat with you! Contact Kristen to discuss.
Volunteer Work Days
During the summer field season (June through mid August), we invite volunteers to join in our morning activities every Thursday from 8am-12pm. You will receive farm vegetables for your morning of work, and get to experience life on the farm crew without making a full-season commitment. If this interests you, email Kristen ([email protected]) to be added to our volunteer list. You'll receive notices and cancellations as necessary, as well as how to prepare for your morning on the farm.
