  • Illinois Farm Jobs – Harvest and Seasonal Work

    Situated in the heart of the American Midwest, the climates found in Illinois facilitate ideal settings for crop growth. The Land of Lincoln ranks as a top producer of corn and soybeans as well as pumpkins and horseradish. Top crops account for more than $13 billion of total agriculture profits. Other agricultural endeavors include poultry and dairy cattle farms. The state contains around 74,000 farms, which encompass over 26.7 million acres of land and rank seventh in the nation in terms of total agricultural sales. Total farmland accounts for roughly 75% of the landmass of the state, which provides countless opportunities for entry-level farming jobs and careers in agricultural administration. The typical farm averages 350 acres in size.

    Farmhands, migrant workers, entry-level job seekers, and career-minded professionals may find Illinois farming jobs appealing. The farming industry incorporates many facets of agriculture and requires a large number of employees to fill job vacancies. The Prairie State represents the top state in terms of processed food sales, while simultaneously consisting of vast networks of family-owned farms who regularly hire entry-level help and professional workers for part-time and full-time jobs. Some of the largest farms in Illinois include family-owned dairy and cattle farms. Comprehensive highway infrastructures link most of the farms and serve as primary reasons for the continued success of the agricultural industry, especially in terms of domestic and international exports.

    Job opportunities available widely include quality control specialist positions in addition to traditional farmhand and picking job opportunities. Illinois agricultural job seekers and migrant workers often find meaningful employment on dairy and cattle farms, as well. Typical pay scales sit around minimum wage and rise to $10.00 an hour or so for entry-level farming jobs. Administrative careers often offer higher wages, including salary options in excess of $50,000 a year. Applicants with experience generally outperform other candidates during the hiring process for picking jobs and other related farm work; however, hiring practices for Illinois farms largely center on as-needed or first-come-first-served bases.
