Long Season Farm is a small, diversified, certified organic vegetable farm focusing on four season production of high quality vegetables for farmers markets, wholesale, and winter CSA in Ulster County NY.
We utilize the main growing season to have a bounty of warm loving crops from late spring through fall. In the “off season” our high tunnels house cold hardy greens and roots, while our cooler stores roots crops and cabbages.
At Long Season Farm, we believe farms are made up of the entire team, and not just the “farm owners.” We don’t hire “interns” or “apprentices,” rather, we strive to create long term, sustainable positions that grow as our farm grows. Each year, development and fair compensation of our crew is one of our top priorities and informs our decision making process, from our crop decisions all the way to our farming practices.
We currently have 2 full-time positions for the season, with the option for year-round employment.
