The farms at Tzafona Cellars are looking for a new member to join the small passionate team as the company builds on the recent purchase of two existing wine grape farms. This is an opportunity to grow into a larger role in time or it is a steady full-time position for someone who already has farming experience.
Working daily alongside the farm manager you will be exposed to and trained up on all aspects of managing an estate vineyard. Running labour crews, operating tractors and specialised equipment, safely applying chemical treatments, conducting machine and hand-picked harvests in the fall. Also assisting in all year-round general maintenance and repair to fences, trellising, tree and wood cutting and so forth.
With the support of a crew of temporary foreign workers the goal is to convert the farms slowly over to organic practices while growing the highest quality grapes possible.
One farm is in the hills just to the west of St. Catharines while the other is in Niagara on the Lake outside the village of Virgil.
Starting hourly pay is above minimum wage and will reflect abilities and skills shown during hiring process. Must be physically fit and able to cope with outdoor weather and have your own reliable transportation. Please do not apply if you are located further than a 45-minute commute from St. Catharines.
