Farm Store Team Member

Fishkill Farms is a third-generation family farm in East Fishkill, growing over 100 acres of fruit & vegetables with sustainable practices. In addition to being a working farm and pick-your-own orchard, we operate a well-stocked local food store, carrying everything from our own fruits and vegetables to cookbooks and baked goods.

We’re looking for responsible and vibrant Team Members with a strong work ethic, excellent attention to detail, and friendly, outgoing demeanor to join this dynamic farm—working under the supervision of the Store Manager.

Hiring for part-time & full-time seasonal employment, with potential for year-round employment for the right person.

Responsibilities include some or all of the following:

  • Setup and stocking: product research, ordering and purchase negotiation, inventory
  • Point of sale: cash register, pricing, labeling
  • Signage, sign-making, displays
  • Kitchen duties: including donut production, soups and other prepared foods
  • Store appearance and cleanliness
  • Managing other seasonal employees including high-schoolers.
  • Providing up-to-date and accurate information on all of the products in the store and on the farm.
  • Excellent interaction with customers, both in the store and on the phone and electronically

This is a great opportunity to work for a mission-based company helping feed local customers great food, and to learn more about food and farming in the Hudson Valley. Employees receive a generous discount in the store and fresh surplus produce from the farm.

Prerequisites

A reliable form of personal transportation to the farm, a high school diploma or college degree, and at least two years of relevant prior work experience in a related field (retail, food service, customer service and/or farming). A knowledge of and passion for home cooking, gardening or local food is a major plus.
