Job Duties:
Corn harvesting will be performed mule train style in crews of approximately 20 pullers. Workers will be pulling sweet corn off the stalk and tossing into a metal bin on the mule train. Workers will walk behind, in front of, or drive the mule train. Workers must keep up with the mule train as it moves slowly through the field at a speed ranging from½ mile to one mile per hour. Assemble boxes/crates on the top of the mule train. Packers will pick corn out of the bins and place 48 ears into pre-made crates. Packed crates are then moved to workers who will fold and close the lid of the crates and push them down the conveyor belt system. Loaders will then lift and stack the full crates of corn onto the truck. Count and check the crates as they are loaded onto truck. Maintain daily log of hours and record number of harvested boxes. Corn is harvested in the early morning hours starting before daylight, while temperatures are cooler. This ensures that the sugar content of the corn is higher and provides a better-quality product. A generator powered lighting system is used during early morning hours. Workers will avoid harvesting ears of corn with discolored husks, unacceptable shanks {longer than 6 inches) or visible worm damage. Sweet corn must be harvested by pulling down while bending and reaching to select mature ears. Workers must carefully select ears of corn of correct size and maturity and toss into bin. Workers with a valid CDL may operate trucks to transport corn and be offered additional hours. In addition, greens, sweet corn, green beans, and cabbage will be harvested, graded, cultivated, and packed in boxes manually by hand and machine. Cabbage Produce may be harvested and field packed. Cabbage that is not field packed will be cut using a knife, put on conveyor belt, cored, and dropped into bin. Workers will harvest leafy greens according to supervisor's instructions by walking down assigned row and cutting leafy greens with a sharp knife. Workers must use care when harvesting not to drop nor damage produce or roots. Remove any discolored or defective leaves; place bands around bundles; place into box; carry and load completed boxes onto moving trailers. May wash, wrap, and/or ice produce in the field. Stack boxes of produce onto pallets, transport vehicles or trailers. Count and check harvested produce. Assemble boxes. Workers are expected to possess the skills to work in the production of crops listed in this job order. The introductory period for all crop activities is 2 days starting with the first day of employment to acclimate the worker to the physical demands of farm work and to familiarize workers with job specifications and to demonstrate proper harvest methods and other crop specific issues. Workers must adhere to all safety rules as instructed by the supervisor. Workers must take care to handle tools, equipment and produce in a manner to avoid injury or damage. The employer will comply with all federal, state, and local safety requirements. Workers will perform assigned duties as instructed by their supervisor. Duties may vary from time to time. Workers will be trained in the proper field and shed sanitation. Workers must follow field sanitation requirements at all times. Not following these requirements are cause for Discipline and/or Termination: The employer retains the right to discharge an obviously unqualified worker, malingerer or recalcitrant worker who is physically able to but does not demonstrate the willingness to perform the work necessary for the employer to grow a premium quality product.
