General labourer – farm

CanWest Farms based in Richmond, BC is inviting applications from suitable candidates for the position of General labourer – farm. CanWest Farms is the hard work and passion of our family, the Kallu family. We have been farming since the 1960’s in Richmond, BC. In the 1980s, our father and mother, Sukhbir and Kiran Kallu, harvested many fruits and vegetables, including strawberries, broccoli and sprouts. During the 90s, as their five children grew up, we modified the fruit market to specialize solely in cultivating and packaging blueberries. The Kallu kids revelled in learning from their parents, and grew up helping on the farm. To this day, we are proud to say that CanWest Farms remains family owned and operated. You can still see Sukhbir and Kiran in their farm market and in the blueberry fields, but majority of the work has now been passed down to their son, Humraj Kallu. The candidates who will get selected for the vacancy will be required to start the work as soon as possible.
