Are you looking for a summer job on Martha’s Vineyard? Or are you on the Island now and looking for work? We are hiring and would love to hear from you if you are interested in a farm job, a retail position in our farmstand or a kitchen or bakery job. We are looking for help through the end of December, and again starting in late April/early May as we begin a new season.
“I was very impressed with all of you and respect the way you run your business. From your family to each and every person employed by you I only experienced kindness. I’ve never seen such great team work and it had been a long time since I had worked with so many positive happy employees. You have something special going for sure. I am grateful to have been a part of it all.”
— W., Morning Glory Farm employee, 2018
Working at Morning Glory Farm is a great way to experience living on Martha’s Vineyard. We even have some staff housing right here on the farm. Beautiful South Beach and bustling downtown Edgartown are short bike rides away and the year-round, all-Island bus service stops right in front of the farmstand. And employees living off-site who take the bus, ride a bike or walk to the farm get a $4 bonus for every day they don’t drive a car to work.
What is it like to work at Morning Glory Farm? The days can start early and there’s a lot of heavy lifting, but we also get breaks and all kinds of free food. Everyone gathers at noon for a substantial farm lunch that includes vegetarian/vegan options and is usually accompanied by a cake, pies or other dessert from the bakery.
Once every summer we have a staff barbecue and talent night when everyone can perform. The Athearns throw seasonal staff parties as well.
The Athearn family and other managers sincerely value every worker, and mutual respect is assumed throughout the farm. Whenever possible, management will work to accommodate your schedule if you also have another job.
Some of our employees have been with us for many seasons; former staffers have raised kids who’ve come to work for us. Morning Glory Farm crew members have gone on to run other farms and businesses; we can also claim Martha’s Vineyard Poet Laureate Justin Ahren and young adult novelist Mary Marshall Highet among our many alumni/ae.
Whether you’re looking for work for this fall, next summer or many seasons to come, we’d like to hear from you. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Apply online now—it’s easy! »»
