  • Oregon Farm Jobs – Harvest and Seasonal Work

    Sustainability and family proprietorship serve as benchmarks for the Oregonian agricultural industry. Roughly 98% of all farms in operation remain under family control. As of 2012, close to 1,100 farms boasted ownership by a single family for more than 100 years. The Oregon Department of Agriculture oversees the cultivation and production of agricultural goods in the Northwest state. Recent legislative acts implemented by ODA limit the use of pesticides in reference to the collection of hazardous substances in ground water and protects the health of cattle and other livestock. The ninth largest state in the U.S., Oregon boasts a moderate population limited to western coastal regions of the state by the Cascade and Rocky Mountain ranges in the east, which provides for nearly 16.4 million acres of arable farmland.

    Collectively, Oregon farms produce around 250 commodities and rank as leading growers of Christmas trees, hazelnuts, ryegrass seed, black raspberries, crimson clover, and nearly ten other fruits, nuts, seeds, and vegetables in the U.S. The Beaver State ranks in the top five for production of hops, blueberries, snap beans, wine grapes, and cranberries among other popular domestic crops. Around 35,000 farms reside throughout the mountainous, coastal state. The north central Columbia Gorge River Plateau and west central Willamette Valley regions of the state boasts some of the most fertile areas of land for crop growing. Approximately 1.7 million acres of land remain in use for agricultural purposes in the Willamette Valley region, rivaled only by the 6.6 million acres in use for farming in the Columbia Gorge Plateau. Combined, the two areas account for more than $3.6 billion in sales, which comprises two-thirds of total revenues derived from state agriculture per annum.

    Favorable mild, humid oceanic climates, fertile soils, and eco-conscious denizens drive the agricultural industry throughout Oregon, with the geographical conditions and overarching environmental philosophies allowing for unique and special attention paid to organic and ethical farming methods. The Beaver State enjoys an international reputation for high-quality products, which spurs outside interests in the purchase of commodities grown, raised, and/or processed. Between 80% and 90% of commodities produced in the state leave the region for sale in other states, with around half of the exports reaching foreign markets. Increasing demands nationwide for organic and cruelty-free fruits, vegetables, meats, and dairy products breed thousands of jobs in the Northwest state, as well. In 2012, roughly one out of every eight jobs related to the agricultural industry in some form. In excess of 140,000 pickers, migrant workers, and farmhands maintain gainful employment in the industry.

    Job seekers looking for Oregon agricultural work primarily fare best when contacting individual farms. 84% of all farms in operation throughout the state remain under individual control. Most farms range between 10 and 50 acres in size and require dozens of able-bodied persons to carry out daily functions and manage subordinate employees. A majority of farm work available includes part-time or seasonal entry-level job opportunities. However, experienced professionals often find long-term, full-time employment as staff supervisors or administrators. The average wage for a farm, fishing, greenhouse, or forestry employee in Oregon rests between $10.00 and $14.00 per hour.

    Some of the largest employers in the Oregon farming industry include the State Department of Agriculture and Threemile Canyon Farms. Oregon Department of Agriculture employs over 600 workers alone. Threemile Canyon Farms, which covers close to 93,000 acres, boasts over 300 year-round workers and an additional 400 seasonal fruit and vegetable pickers during harvests. Farms of similar size hire and retain hardworking individuals to serve as full-time or part-time staff members with regularity. The list below offers updated resources regarding available employment opportunities in the state:
