Employment

Farmtastic Fun

People come to Center Grove Orchard to have fun, but we don’t let the fun stop with our visitors. As a team member at Center Grove Orchard, you get to work alongside other rockstar people at a family-owned business that believes having fun and working hard go hand in hand.

See what we’re doing to keep our guests and team members safe.

Let’s Sweeten the Deal

It’s easy to have a good time at work when you work at Center Grove Orchard, but we offer plenty of on-the-job benefits that make life on our team a little bit sweeter.

We know that giving our visitors the best experiences requires us to do the same for our team. That’s why we allow casual work attire and flexible scheduling so your time working at Center Grove Orchard fits seamlessly into your life, including school, jobs, or other activities (sports, bridge club, etc.). Don’t forget about complimentary train rides, and free apple slingshots for our team members as well.

As if spending time at the orchard while at work wasn’t fun enough, all team members also receive free admission to the orchard for themselves, as well as four season passes for family and friends. While you’re at the orchard, you’ll also receive 30% off any purchases you make, including food or souvenirs.

Have we mentioned our baby goats yet? We have a lot of those, too.

You’ve been asking and here’s your answer!

Santa Claus is coming to town! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Join us for Brunch with Santa each weekend until Christmas.  Tickets must be purchased online and include brunch 🍴, crafts and activities 🎨, a CGO Express train ride (weather permitting) πŸš‚, and of course...SANTA! πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Being safe is a gift we can all give each other this year, so Santa (masked) will be in the chair while children (masked) share their wishes with him from the straw bales behind the picket fence. Elves will help monitor the timing so that each child/family gets their best-that-2020-can-offer photo op πŸ“· with Santa. 

Tickets are limited for each time slot.
