Members of the farm crew will work at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s Clagett Farm, which is located just a few miles east of the D.C. Beltway in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. At Clagett Farm, we raise grass-fed beef cattle, native trees for stream restoration, organic vegetables and fruits and Christmas trees.
Farm crew members will work primarily on the vegetable operation, which is a joint project with the Capital Area Food Bank. Every week for 6 months, we distribute about a third of our produce to food pantries. We sell the rest to our 250 members through a marketing system called Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). We rely on help from a large number of volunteers and people who work for produce
Pay: Starts at $11.75/hour
