Join Santa’s Team!

Jobs at Santa’s Farm are a lot of work and a lot of fun. We are in the agritainment business, which means that people are visiting the farm to be entertained. As an employee, you interact directly with guests who are looking for fun, family-friendly activities that introduce their children to farm life. They have planned an adventure, made the drive out to the country, and may spend the entire day with us. But they need a little help!

It’s our job, as Santa’s team members, to make sure that guests find their way around the farm and have the incredible experience that they expected. We have the privilege of creating lifelong memories for our guests. We hear children say that this was the best day of their lives! Now doesn’t that sound rewarding?

If it doesn’t, don’t apply. Every year we have more applicants than we could possibly hire. If you cannot smile no matter what and help people for six to eight hours at a time, this job is not for you.

Why is this job so great?

Our jobs allow you to work outdoors in an ever changing landscape interacting with people from all over the world. Many employees return year after year to be a part of our experience, and employees form friendships that last even when they are not at the farm.  Our positions are part-time and seasonal, so they are perfect for students or stay-at-home moms who may be unable to commit to year round employment.  Whether you care for animals, carry trees, launch guests on the zip line or serve food, you get to create an awesome experience for our guests, and you are a part of thousands of families’ holiday traditions!
