Current farm equipment includes three tractors of varying sizes, implements for these tractors, a 4,000L mister sprayer, a zero turn mower, a forklift, six quad bikes, a computerised packing line, a work ute and a pumpshed with associated irrigation equipment. A fruit pulper is currently being installed to extract pulp from the Achacha.
A competitive salary package will be offered. Single on site accommodation in the company’s guest house may be available to the successful applicant.
What is the opportunity?
This position is a great pathway opportunity, with scope for learning different farming methods and for exercising initiative. If you are able to prove yourself the owners are open to significantly increasing the role’s scope and responsibilities in the relatively short term.
Is the farm currently profitable?
The role will require participating in the general activities associated with running and managing an orchard. The plantation uses organic / biodynamic practices so candidates, who might not have experience in these areas, should be prepared to adapt to them.
