Join the Team

Are you a hardworking, kind, love-being-outdoors in the summer kind of person?  If so, we just may be the perfect match for you this summer.

Mapleton Acres is expanding and looking for rockstars to join our team where we not only grow beautiful flowers, but also people too!  Farming is hard work, but is also the best kind of work I (Emily) have ever done.  If you think you'd be a great fit for the team, keep on reading.

Job Position: Field + Retail Assistant

Details: Part-Time Position (10 to 20 hours a week).  Weekend availability is required (our farm is open Thursday to Monday, including long weekends and holidays).  Salary: $18-$25/hour depending on experience.

Responsibilities:  As a Field + Retail Assistant, you'll find yourself in two different roles.  You'll be split between the Flower Field and our Flower Farm Shop/Concession Trailer.  You may be directing parking, supporting guests as they experience the flower farm in the field or shop, weeding flower beds, harvesting flowers, washing flower buckets, serving drinks and snacks out of the concession trailer, setting up for a flower field workshop, answering customer questions, and various other jobs around the farm.  No two days will look the same here at the farm.

Mother Nature and the weather also affect the responsibilities.  You must be comfortable working outside in both sunshine/heat as well as cool/rainy conditions as there is little shelter from the elements in the field.


  • Experience in a greenhouse or farm is strongly preferred, but not required.  Work experience in a fast-paced environment that requires multi-tasking, such as a restaurant or team-oriented job is helpful.
  • A hard-working, energetic person who works quickly and efficiently both individually and in a group setting.
  • Able to work 8+ hours on your feet in all weather conditions.
  • High attention to detail and quality while being open to direct performance feedback.
  • Physically fit and able to perform demanding and repetitive farm tasks (bending, squatting, lifting, kneeling, standing on a daily basis). You must be able to lift items up to 50 lbs. We do not sit to plant, harvest, or for bed cultivation.
  • Individuals will have the ability to work without your cell phone.  You must be punctual and reliable. Call-offs and tardiness are not tolerated.
