Phoenix Fruit Farm is hiring for the coming season! Please read the job description below:

Tractor Operator – part time

We are currently hiring for a position as a part-time, year-round tractor operator. Work hours are 8-4 in the winter/spring, and 7-4:30 in the summer/fall, three days a week, ideally Tuesday through Thursday but there is some flexibility in the weekly schedule. There will also be some opportunity to pick up extra hours during our busy season in September and October. We are a new, growing farm business and are looking forward to building a dynamic team – this position has potential to expand into a full-time, key position for the right person.

The main responsibilities will be tractor projects such as mowing, fertilizing, spraying, and transporting apple bins during harvest. The tractor operator will also do other on-farm projects such as pruning in the winter, planting in the spring, helping out as needed in the packing house in the summer and fall, and possibly driving deliveries.

Requirements:

-At least three years of tractor operating experience on a farm

-A valid drivers license and clean driving record

 

The position starts immediately.
