Farm Team Members Needed:
Do you believe that you were meant to be a farmer?
Do you believe that working outdoors is better than sitting behind a desk, on the road driving, or working in a factory? If so, we want to meet you.
H.H. Dobbins & Son is looking for positive, productive team members to help us operate our fruit farms. Everyday we strive to grow the highest quality apples in our region. We’re a growing farm, under new management, currently running 160 acres of orchards with locations in Lyndonville, Knowlesville, and Lockport. We work outside year-round. We enjoy watching our orchards evolve throughout the growing season. But we need more help so that we can be more efficient and effective.
You’ll need to be a good communicator. You may need to self-direct while working independently at one of the farms. Other times you’ll need to contribute as a team member working with as many as 40 people. When our staff is working in a large group you may be asked to take on supervisory responsibilities. We are continuously investing in new equipment and technology. However, we still have older equipment, so you’ll need to be proactive about equipment maintenance, and also be a problem solver to repair equipment when breakdowns occur.
In the spring and early summer, we spray a lot which means you may need to safely handle pesticides. Some materials are heavy so you should be able to lift at least 50 lbs. Willingness to obtain a pesticide applicator license would be greatly appreciated. If you do not wish to participate in spraying, other tasks are available.
In a nutshell – we need help continuously improving and operating our farms. We can’t do this without adding good people to our team. People that love farming as much as we do. We farm apples, but we’d like to talk to you if you have any relevant farming experience and interest. We are open and flexible to different schedules – full-time, part-time, and/or seasonal help.
If you’re interested please contact us – tell us about yourself in a resume, email, or an application and we can set up a time to meet you. Compensation is competitive based on experience/skillset. Benefits apply for qualified candidates.
