Join Our Team and be a Memory Maker

Join Our Team



Here at Patterson Farm Market & Tours, Inc., we hire Memory Makers. We work hard but our job is FUN. We are in the business of making sure our guests are educated about agriculture, have fun and create lasting memories on the farm, which simply means people pay us for an unforgettably fun experience.  We are also in the produce business and want to provide our customers with top quality produce which is also part of being a Memory Maker. 

As an employee you interact directly with people looking for a family friendly adventure that’s sure to fill their day with fun. They’ve planned their outing; driven an hour or more; and they are planning to spend the day with us. Some are creating or participating in a family tradition by visiting us at the farm. All they need is a little help. 

As a Memory Maker, it’s our job to make sure each guest, young and old, receives the amazing experience they came for. This means throughout their entire visit to the Farm, we MUST make sure all their questions are answered, assist them with finding what they need, go the extra mile to lend them a hand, provide them with a safe clean environment, and work extra hard to guarantee they are having a safe, great time. It’s really simple. All we have to do is take care of them. Sounds fun?

If this sounds like something you would LOVE doing, apply with us. 


Every day and every job is different. Some days are slower and we can get to know our guests, taking a minute to laugh and cut-up with them. Other days are action-packed and seem to go by in a flash. We offer flexible schedules for our Stay-At-Home Moms, Students, Retirees, Grandparents and Second Job Weekend Warriors. We have indoor and outdoor tasks; more physical and less physical tasks; more interaction and less interaction tasks.

We offer flexible schedules for:
