Tea Lane Farm is seeking a full-time farmer

We are a thirteen acre farm located on Martha's Vineyard, with four acres devoted to organic cut flower production and the remaining nine acres to sheep and cows. The Tea Lane property includes a 250 year old farmhouse, pastoral fields with grazing sheep and cows, several barns - all surrounded by stone walls. Just a ten minute ride to the ocean. Though our business has been in operation for ten years, this is our second year in a new location - so this is an exciting opportunity to grow and learn with us.  We're seeking someone to be an integral part of our team and essential to the development of our infrastructure. We grow hundreds of varieties of annual and perennial flowers as well as:

  • design and arrange flowers for weddings and events
  • make custom arrangements at the local farmers’ markets
  • sell wholesale to the Boston Flower Market
  • sell at a roadside stands and local businesses

We are primarily looking for someone to be involved with the farming aspect of the business, including: 

  • seeding
  • greenhouse maintenance 
  • planting
  • weeding
  • harvesting
  • working at the farmer’s market

An interest and willingness to design and arrange flowers is helpful but not necessary.  Two years of any farm experience is preferred.  Our ideal candidate is hardworking and lighthearted, flexible and dependable, kind and thoughtful, resourceful and creative, strong (lift 50 lbs) and has the ability to work independently.  Carpentry skills would be a plus.  Like we said, this is a growing business, and we get to wear many hats! This is a great opportunity to be part of a new farm on a beautiful island!  We work hard and like to have fun.
