Apiary Technician-Wild Antho, Armstrong BC
Wild Antho is seeking apiary technicians to work full time (40-60 hours/week) on our farm starting Mar.15 through Oct.31. Wage is $15-$20+/hour, negotiable based on experience and aptitude.
We are an apiary located in Armstrong, BC, with bee yards peppered throughout the Okanagan Valley and Shuswap. Our primary focus is production of nucleus hives and queens. Honey production and pollination are also important to our operation.
The main duties of the successful candidate(s) will be helping move and feed hives, setting up and taking down bee yards, catching queens for sale, hive monitoring/splitting/equalizing, disease and pest treatment application, taking honey off of hives and honey extraction, and general labour such as building/fixing equipment, loading/unloading trucks and trailers.
This position requires the ability to work at length in crouching or bent positions, to lift boxes weighing as much as 100lbs, and to concentrate on a single task for entire work days. As the bee season is variable, so are the jobs on the farm!
Please email resumes to Emily and Shayne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
