Looking for a job working on a farm?
We produce an electronic jobs bulletin and update it periodically to help workers connect with jobs on farms in New York. Access the New York Farm Jobs Bulletin.
The job postings generally include the following information.
*Some employers want you contact the farm directly (by telephone, mail, fax, E-mail, or in person), and others require that workers be referred by the Department of Labor.

The booklet is currently being updated.
