Services for Agricultural Workers

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.

  • County where the work will be performed
  • Job title
  • Job description
  • Minimum experience requirement
  • Wage
  • How to apply*

*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.

To learn about other job opportunities in agriculture, open the Job Order Tracker or visit the H-2A job orders page.

We have produced a booklet entitled Services and Protections for Farmworkers. It is available in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
