Job Title: Site Rental Coordinator


Description: The Queens County Farm Museum is a 47-acre working farm dating back to 1697. We are a public resource, visited by over 400,000 people each year. The site includes a landmark farmhouse, glass greenhouse, and restored barns which give us a glimpse into our agrarian past. Its rich glacial soil – which attracted European settlers in the 17th century – is cultivated today using sustainable practices, providing people with the freshest food. We are a New York City treasure where historic structures, productive fields, woodland, and livestock bring agricultural history to life. Queens Farm is seeking a full-time Site Rental Coordinator to support managerial staff, schedule and coordinate site rentals, maintain our membership database and perform a wide variety of office tasks. Queens Farm has a small team that works closely together to facilitate programs and events. The Site Rental Coordinator will collaborate frequently with multiple departments and interact with the public as the face of our organization to help maintain a smooth, efficient, and friendly office environment.
