H2A Available Job

Number of Workers Requested:  88
Hand harvest, hoe, thin vegetables: zucchini, cucumbers, squash, onions, broccoli, turnips, rutabagas, parsnips, sweet corn, lettuces, kale & cabbage. Lift, move & carry 65 lb. veg. boxes and irrigation pipe. Shovel irrigation ditches. Stand, bend, stoop, walk, and lift throughout workday. Worker required to keep pace w/majority of workers. Minimum 3 months harvesting experience. Employer pays for random post-employment drug testing. Workday is from 8 AM to 4 PM Monday thru Friday and 8AM to 1 PM on Saturday. Because the quality of marketable vegetables (i.e., unbruised, uninjured and hand inspected) is important for the farmer’s business model, the employer is requiring workers to have at least 3 months’ harvesting experience to ensure that workers have the necessary skills to properly harvest, handle, grade and pack vegetables grown. The quality of the vegetables has a significant influence of determining the level of consumer acceptance. Because consumers perceive that the quality of vegetables are dependent upon appearing crisp, fresh and unbruised and uninjured, special skills and experience are required for the proper harvesting, handling, grading and packing to ensure optimum produce quality at the marketplace. Not all vegetables can be harvested, handled or packed in the same manner. Improper harvesting and rough handling can cause bruising and injure vegetables, which reduces the value of the product at the marketplace and promotes premature decay.
