We welcome non-smoking volunteers to ARTfarm. Our volunteers help keep the farm viable and functioning. ARTfarm volunteers usually come once or twice a week for 2-4 hours on a regular schedule and help with any aspect of the farm that interests them. We do not have housing for volunteers. This program is limited during the COVID-19 pandemic. Call us for more information at (340)514-4873.
ARTfarm is not a WWOOF participating farm at this time because we do not have facilities for workers to stay on the farm overnight. If you are interested in spending more time with us, consider becoming an employee.
We hire one to four fantastic, enthusiastic non-smoking employees every year, who usually work somewhere between 15 to 30 hours per week for the entire season of five or six months. We do not yet offer housing, but it’s in the works.
Laughing about something every day is an essential part of our workflow. Farming is hot, dirty, physical work involving lifting, carrying, reaching, bending, squatting, kneeling and coping with the hot Caribbean weather, including early and late work hours. Employees must demonstrate strong powers of observation, critical thinking and listening skills, mindfulness, attention to detail, healthy emotional boundaries, and respect for all kinds of people. We keep livestock and poultry, and employees must be willing to work with our farm animals and animal products. We are not an animal sanctuary or a vegan farm. A sense of ‘high pace in flow’ and efficiency while working, the ability to take specific direction and manage a task list, and passion for regenerative farming are keys to success on our small diverse mom-and-pop production farm. If you have those qualities and can enjoy a good running joke, please get in touch!
If you contact us seeking employment, please supply a CV or work summary and cover letter with your request, describing your farming experience, your work history, and what you’re looking to get out of working at ARTfarm. We’ll need work and personal references. You must already be legally eligible and permitted to work in the US. We look forward to getting to know you.
