For spring/summer of 2018, we are looking for hard-working individuals who want to gain knowledge and experience with farm animals and management practices. The positions we are looking for will include traveling with the animals to community events. You will be in charge of loading and unloading animals for travel, supervising during the events to monitor that they are safe, while teaching and demonstrating for visitors. It includes feeding chores where you provide the basic daily needs for our cows, equine, hogs, sheep, goats, poultry, turkeys and companion animals. We work with many children on the farm so this position requires patience and a loving attitude towards our many volunteer kids and guests.
 

The individuals we hire need to be physically fit (enough to carry 50lbs. for extended periods of time without health concerns). Summer employees work for 10 weeks, and interns often complete up to 16 weeks, depending on your schedule. Vacation time is limited, due to the busy season. We will discuss the schedule details further during your interview. A stipend is included to help compensate for your time.

Please email your resume with two references and a completed application by February 5, 2018. You will be contacted by February 20 for an interview if you qualify.

Critter Barn believes in teaching young people life skills while working on our farm. Discovering the cycles of the seasons, working with a team, and caring for live animals develops personal character. Our staff works side-by-side with children and youth every day.  Relationships are the foundation of our success.

Supporting the Critter Barn makes it possible for our adult staff to spend one-on-one time with kids in a working farm environment that prepares them for future responsibilities and challenges.
