INDIANAPOLIS — If you are a fan of fall and in need of a job, Waterman’s Family Farm may have an opportunity for you.

The family farm kicked off its fall festival just last weekend and they are looking for some friendly faces to join their team.

“It’s been different, but people want to get out, people have been understanding of what we can and can’t do and also the things we have implemented they have been understanding of those things too,” Corinne Conners said.

She’s a fall festival manager and has been working here for six years and this is the first year she feared the show might not go on because of the pandemic.

“I was afraid that we wouldn’t be able to open but we jumped through some hoops and got somethings figured out with the health department,” Conners said.

Families are back in the family’s pumpkin patch, going for hayrides, and loading up to hop all aboard the train here but not before social distancing and wearing face masks.

“This is his first Halloween and we wanted to make it special just pick a perfect pumpkin we can carve,” Sydney Clark said.

“He was born when the pandemic started so it was scary at first for us to get out because we were scared about how it would impact him,” Ben Foster said.

The family farm needs more employees as demand, and the crowds grow.

There are a few ways you can go about getting a job.

Check out the farm’s Facebook page, give them a call or stop in to pick up an application.

“We are looking for people who love kids, people who love the outdoors because we are a family farm,” add Conners.

Conners says if you fit that description, then come on down and join the team.
