The position could start as early as late July for the right candidate, and conclude at the completion of harvest, approximately early November weather dependent. We offer competitive wages, and end of season bonus! While we are unable to provide housing, we have several contacts with rooms and can assist in finding a place to stay. At the peak of harvest, we will provide Harvest lunches and healthy snacks.

Working conditions vary from hot to cold, dusty or wet and sometimes noisy therefore requiring a tolerance to varying conditions. Good communication skills, a solid comprehension of English, and attention to detail a must. Previous harvest experience and or forklift training a plus.
