Field Guide:

Primarily, our guests visit the farm for our high quality fruit, and the Pick-Your-Own experience. As a Field guide you are responsible for working directly with our guests out in the field, and facilitating a day of family fun and fruit picking. It is your job to greet our guests, explain the proper way to harvest, monitor the fruit supply in picking locations, and supervise behavior in the orchard. You must have the ability to “go with the flow,” work as a team, hustle, and function in what can sometimes be a busy fast paced environment. All while having FUN!
