Employment with Holland Harvesting
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~Mark Twain
The crew we put together likes to harvest, and they take it seriously… We have found the best crew members are those that want to go more for the experience than anything else. They like farming and “big iron”. If you just need a job, we don’t want you. You will have the opportunity to see the country and many different farm operations, and gain valuable truck driving and equipment experience while you live and work closely with like-minded individuals interested in agriculture. We make an effort to get you out to see some sights both agriculture oriented and recreational, but our #1 priority is harvest. If you don’t have an innate sense of the importance of running an efficient and timely harvest for our customers and actually like harvesting, then this probably isn’t for you and it’s better said now than later.
Close relationships are formed within the crew. We often have crew members stay in touch with us and other co-workers for years to come, even after they discontinue the harvest run. Over the years, members have been from many states and 14 different countries.
Some mechanical aptitude and equipment operation or truck driving experience is necessary. We will help you learn to drive and obtain a CDL (commercial driver’s license) if necessary. Preferably, you will spend some time with us before harvest even starts, becoming acquainted with equipment and your fellow crew members. We have a permanent trailer house located on the farm, two custom built crew trailers and three RV travel trailers while on the road. Room and board and regular salary by direct deposit into the account of your specification is provided.
