The Garlic Farm is now accepting applications for the garlic
harvesters for 2019. It's a week or two of hard work out of
doors that's a compelling teamwork experience of bringing in the
entire garlic crop, bundling it, and shelving or hanging it to
cure. Farm owner Gary Cirullo expects harvest to start mid-July
this year. The exact dates depend upon the weather and the
development of the garlic in the field. See photos of past
harvests on our Facebook
page if you want to a clearer idea of what the work is
Gary likes to hire the harvest crew during the spring and early
summer. Sometimes he asks prospective harvest workers to work a
bit in the fields before harvest time, so apply promptly if
you're interested in harvest work.
Gary may also need some extra help during the summer for
fieldwork and harvesting for market.
Gary often needs additional part-time, casual workers for
harvesting, staffing the retail stand, and fall fieldwork at the
end of the summer after this summer's field-hands return to
If you're interested in working this season as a field-hand or
as a garlic harvester, please apply now.
Anyone age 16 and older who is interested in farm work and who
has a desire to work hard out of doors is encouraged to apply.
(Parents, grandparents, guardians, aunts, uncles &
well-meaning neighbors take note: Please do not act as an
intermediary on behalf of a young person. Instead, point your
favorite hardworking young person to this page and let the young
person take it from there. Farmers need to know that young
people are committed enough for themselves that they'll show up
at the appointed time, so the employer tends to take seriously
only inquiries by young workers themselves.)
Small farms have no human resources clerks, so if you've worked
at the farm in the past and would like to work again this
season, please do apply again because we don't necessarily keep
an accurate call list from one year to the next.
To apply, send a letter or an e-mail message that introduces
yourself and mentions any farm work or outdoor work you've
already done (e-mail subject: Employment) to:
