FARM JOB: Kelowna, BC – Hidden Vines, Vineyard Farm Worker

Posted by JoHana Harcourt on October 14, 2022

Hidden Vines in Kelowna, BC is seeking a Vineyard Farm Worker

ABOUT Hidden Vines

We are a small family-run vineyard in Kelowna, BC. We are far enough from the city to have a rural feel but, a 10-minute drive/20-minute bike to downtown. Currently, we have 5 acres planted but in the next few years will grow to 10 acres under vine. We have a few areas on our property that are not suitable for vines so we are looking to plant vegetables (approximately 2 acres).

We sell our fruit to local wineries currently, but do plan to open a small winery where we could sell everything produced on our farm.
We also have a small chicken coop (100 hens) and sell eggs locally.

Our farm is not certified organic. We have set the vineyard up to become organic (no pressure-treated posts, no synthetic fertilizers, etc) but currently, we farm as sustainably as we possibly can.

DESIRED QUALITIES

We are looking for a few dedicated hard-working individuals with good attention to detail to learn and enjoy farming.

JOB TASKS

  • Vineyard yearly tasks: pruning, tying, tucking, thinning, leafing, picking
  • Tending to the chickens and vegetable gardens

JOB DETAILS

Term: We are very flexible about what this position is, or could be. For the right fit, this could easily be a permanent position, however, we would also consider May through September employment.

Hours per week: Hours would be negotiable depending on how many tasks are undertaken. Maximum vineyard hours would be 20 hours weekly.

Wage: Wages for hourly work would start at minimum wage.

  • Beautiful housing overlooking the vineyard (furnished for a couple but could be converted to shared accommodation)
