• Prince Edward Island Farm Work - Harvest and Seasonal Jobs

    Nicknamed the Garden Province due to its rich soil and abundant farms, Prince Edward Island's dominant industry is agriculture. There are nearly 1,500 crop and livestock farms on approximately 594,000 acres of land across the province. Potatoes represent the most plentiful crop, with 50% of the total agricultural yield, which equates to approximately $200 million CAD annually. Many PEI farms grow wheat, grain corn, oats, barley, and oilseed in rotation with potato crops. The province also produces a diverse array of fruits and vegetables.

    Located off the coast of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island enjoys a milder climate than the Canadian mainland due to the warm waters off the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The spring, summer, and fall months make up the prime farming season, and a combination of warm summers and cool, wet winters create premium growing conditions.

    Prince Edward Island farmers generate a varied assortment of crops and raise several breeds of livestock. Blueberries are the most abundant fruit grown, along with strawberries, apples, raspberries, and cranberries. Vegetables also serve as important cash crops. Vegetables grown on local farms include carrots, cabbage, onions, and cauliflower. Forty percent of the island’s farms produce beef. Around 180 dairy farms operate on the island and range in size from 20 to 200 milk-producing cows.

    The island consists primarily of small farms; however, several commercial farms also operate there. Larger, modernized farms on Prince Edward Island utilize industrial farming techniques, while the smaller farms still require workers to perform picking jobs. The mix of small, family-owned and commercial farms ensures the availability of both entry-level farm jobs and work for skilled farming professionals. In fact, over three percent of the island's total population live on farms.

    Job seekers find both part-time and full-time employment. Fruit and vegetable pickers and canners are common entry-level jobs, and individuals filling these positions generally make $10.50 CAD in hourly wages. Common duties include sorting and packing fruits and vegetables and picking row and orchard crops. Workers also load and unload crates, farming supplies, and produce. Other agricultural jobs requiring additional training or schooling include agronomist, veterinarian, horticulturalist, truck driver, mechanic, and agricultural engineer.

    Individuals interested in filling careers in the farming industry should look to the apprenticeship program offered by the PEI Agriculture Sector Council. Funded by a grant, the apprenticeship teaches job hopefuls how to use and maintain farm equipment, food safety, and pesticides, with additional emphasis on soil and nutrient management as well as general farm management. Dedicated workers can visit the council's website to fill out online applications and begin careers in the Prince Edward Island agricultural industry.
