We currently have a position for a Harvest Cellarhand available. What does a “harvest cellarhand” do you ask?
Primarily – alot of cleaning. Cleaning tanks, cleaning the press, cleaning the pump, cleaning the floors, cleaning small wine making tools….then we use the equipment a little bit, and then – yup – clean it all again.
This position will be heavily involved with the processing and pressing of apples. A good mechanical aptitude and problem solving skills are required, as well as the ability to work continuously around loud equipment. The candidate must be physically fit, able to spend extended time standing, moving, and lifting. Occasional harvesting of crabapples may be required if the orchard harvest crew is not available.
This job requires work both indoors and outdoors in all sorts of weather. You can expect wet feet, cold hands, excellent cider and a fun team of great people to work with.
No experience necessary as training will be provided.
Schedule is to be determined but will average to 32 hours a week – some weeks might be fulltime and others less hours depending on the pressing and harvest schedule. Contract is to run from mid-September to late November depending on the fruit and fermentations.
Wage is $16 per hour plus cider. Resumes can be emailed to Missy at firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off in person at the Ciderhouse during our business hours.
