  • Pennsylvania Farm Jobs – Harvest and Seasonal Work

    The humid continental state of Pennsylvania experiences distinct seasonal variations fostering a thriving agricultural community. Approximately 70% of income derived from the farming industry stems from livestock and associated products. The production of milk garners annual profits close to $2.1 billion and roughly 6.7 percent of supplies for the nation. Also essential, poultry farms yield revenue of around $644 million from turkeys, broilers, and eggs. Ranked first nationally in growing mushrooms, The Quaker State turns out over 443 million pounds of the fleshy fungus. In portions of the southeast, winter wheat poses as a prominent crop commodity. Apples, cherries, grapes, cattle, hogs, and potatoes also feature in fields across the state. Agricultural exports, to include food and forest products, support economic activity in the value of a little under $960 million. Newbie and experienced farmworkers find employment easily among the nearly 63,000 farms.

    Mountains run diagonally along the southwest and northeast contrasting coastal plains on the southeast and a plateau to the northwest. Historically, the varying regions separated the specific types of commodities highlighted in an area. Hazleton soil, a very deep, well-draining loam, forms on uplands of brown or red sandstone. Occurring in 37 Pennsylvania counties, the soil characteristically inhabits woodlands, pasture, and cropland. Short summers and severe winters account for a three- to four-month long growing season in upland domains of The Coal State. Lowlands experience comparatively longer summers and mild winters with five- to seven-month long farming seasons. Depending on location, annual temperatures between 44 and 54 degrees Fahrenheit hold common. An abundance of rainfall, roughly 42 inches annually, supports blossoming crops, as well. Central regions and terrain with higher elevations typically lack a farming culture due to less fertile earth. Favorable soil tends to scatter throughout southeast Pennsylvania where prime farmland rakes expansive sale prices.

    Since 1935, Kreider Farms continuously expands operations in quaint Lancaster County. The farmstead, once 103 acres, encompasses over 2,500 acres and supports 6 million chickens and 2,000 cows. Contributing to the successful operation of the farm, approximately 400 employees assist on the productive, non-irrigated land. Opportunities frequently consist of packing, caretaking, machine operating, and managing with entry-level positions beginning at $9.00 an hour. Potential employees apply for openings by downloading applications and mailing forms to the appropriate address. Another establishment, Phillips Mushroom Farms, distributes close to 35 million pounds of specialty mushrooms all across the United States each year. Migrant workers and pickers demonstrate dedication to quality control when packing and transporting the prized crop. Interested candidates should arrive in person to hand deliver resumes highlighting previous farming experience or education.

    Rural, agricultural portions of The Keystone State enlist the help of over 103,000 farmworkers annually. An estimated 45,000 to 50,000 migrant farm laborers flock to Pennsylvania for seasonal employment. The prosperity of many farmers greatly depends on the thousands of migrant workers filling positions with extensive physical demands. Because machinery and livestock pose specific safety concerns, the ideal farmhand upholds commitment to safe practices, explicitly follows directions, and maintains physical capabilities of long, hard hours. Individuals with degrees in agriculture or widespread farming experience enjoy access to higher salary packages. Job titles of supervisor, production manager, accountant, educator, and marketer provide long lasting career opportunities. Aspirants should contact farm owners through in-person visits or over the phone for employment consideration.
