Daily Farm Updates Sunday, September 20, 2020


We are especially looking for weekday daytime staff right now. If you are looking for daytime hours on weekdays, please apply!

Working at Center Grove Orchard is almost as fun as visiting!

We are looking for people who are friendly, responsible, hard-working, and who love to work with children and families—we’d love to have you as part of our CGO family!

We do hire 14 and 15 year olds and are proud to offer them their first job in a fun and positive environment. We have reached our maximum on those numbers at this time, so applications from 14 and 15 year olds will be added to a waiting list.
