Boyd’s Family Farm is a cherished family-run estate with roots dating back to 1847. Nestled in the heart of nature’s embrace in Northeastern Pennsylvania, our non-operational farm has thrived for generations, dedicated to preserving the timeless beauty of the natural world. We specialize in landscaping, maintaining the delicate balance within our forested haven, and cultivating a deep sense of stewardship for the environment.

Our Mission

At Boyd’s Family Farm we have a profound commitment to environmental conservation and sustainable practices. Our mission is to create and share a harmonious blend of nature and human interaction, fostering a deep appreciation for the wonders of the outdoors while equipping individuals with invaluable skills in landscaping, gardening, forestry, and wildlife management.

Our Culture

We pride ourselves on maintaining a warm, inclusive, and supportive atmosphere. Our farm is not just a workplace; it’s our home. We hope to be able to share it as a place where everyone is regarded as an integral part of the family. We encourage our team members to connect with the land, explore their passions, and develop new skills in a relaxed, family-style environment.

What we can offer:

1. Skill Development: Boyd’s Family Farm is a place of continuous learning and growth. We provide ample opportunities for our team members to expand their landscaping, forestry, and wildlife management skills. We welcome you to join us in honing your expertise.

2. Flexible Hours: Recognizing that nature operates on its own schedule, we offer flexible working hours that accommodate the ever-changing demands of the property. This flexibility ensures that our employees can balance their work with personal commitments.

3. Growth Opportunities: We believe in nurturing talent from within. As a member of our team, you’ll have the chance to grow alongside the farm, with plenty of opportunities for advancement and leadership roles.

4. Casual Family-Style Environment: At Boyd’s Family Farm, we take our work seriously but embrace a laid-back, family-style approach. We foster camaraderie, encourage open communication, and celebrate our collective achievements.

Who We’re Looking For:

We’re seeking individuals who are not just willing but eager to work outdoors, rain or shine. We are looking for individuals or couples to aid in maintaining and improving the property as the work load has gotten to much for a few to manage. If you’re passionate about preserving the beauty of nature, have an affinity for landscaping, gardening and forestry, and desire to make a positive impact on the environment, we invite you to be a part of our team. Your dedication to the cause and willingness to learn and grow are the qualities we value most.
