We pay $20 to $60 per hr depending on qualifications. 

We are hiring, farming is actually many occupations wrapped into one. We do not have "manual labourers" all jobs use a machine of some kind. We farm which is obvious, we design, build and use custom made machinery. We are continually building and modifying existing machines/buildings. See various job descriptions below and pictures of equipment to be operated thru the website. At present we would like to hire apprentice mechanic or welder.

We actually have 5 Class VIII combines however most of the time we cannot find enough "combine pilots". Another reason many days for running less is grain transport, we just cannot haul grain fast enough on a good crop.

The corona virus will change our way of life. As of 2023 this stupidity is gone but it will happen again, covid made alot of money for some evil people, they will do it again. The farm provides a isolated secure work enviroment where physical distance is easily maintained. If a worker wants a motor home can be parked on the farm, this will result in much personal freedom. We are essential workers. As is stated many times on this website mechanically inclined workers are needed.  Grain farming is machine farming. 

We do not want girlie men, if the fires that are blamed on climate change happened in 1946 a generation of REAL men would have put the fires out, it would have been just another day for a REAL man. Now we have tough guys/bullies pushing climate change, shutting down railways etc. The summer of 2023 was unbeleivably bad for air quality, a very plausible rumor is that these fires were set by climate change activists. I expect my workers to make a positive contribution to Alberta and to respect our founding conservative culture.

 We are would like to hire a young person (plus 25 for insurance reasons) that would like to apprentice or is a journeyman. We have a heavy duty ag mechanic and welder on staff. Duties would include modifying/fixing farm machinery, building machinery that we cannot buy and operating farm equipment. Electronic knowledge is very desirable as most machines are computer controlled. We tend to work alone much of the time so the ability to work safely with minimum suppervision is important. A class clean class 1 liscence is desirable. Winter hours are very flexible, summer hours are long and mandatory.

This website is a oversight of all that we do, if you feel your skill set and value system match our operation send a resume or a detailed account of past work experience to jacobsfarmsdaysland@gmail.com

Wage to be set based on education and experience with tradesmen/engineers starting at $30/hr. Given the meltdown in the world farming is probably the most secure long term occupation. Communism is taking over, it always lowers production.

We have a home in Lake Havasu Arizona which offers much recreation in a warm place during the winter, our workers are welcome of course.

We have the necessary equipment and knowledge to repair most machines. Here we are changing cones and cages on combines.

Above are the computers in some of the machines, the monitor directly above uses Windows XP software, one must understand alot of software to run the machines. Most can diagnose the machines problems if the procedure is known.

Here is what a poor choice on my behalf looks like!!  Good judgement is needed to run large farm machines. It happens to the best operators, the important part is to get the large fragile machine out without damage or worker injury. Most of the time another of our large 4 wheel drive tractors (we have 3) is close so we can pull the stuck machine without unhooking, 

At best we run 5 combines so we need 5 combine operators, 1 grain cart driver and 2 truckers. Many times we canot find enough qualified people.


Learning how to run most equipment is assisted by 2 way radios, because the combines are identical only 1 experienced operator is required

If you like to work and play with machines we will offer you the chance to do what you enjoy for a good living.
