How to Apply

PG. Rix Farms is a 2500ha farming business on the Essex/Suffolk border just North of Colchester. We offer a broad range of experience across a number of crops types.

Annually we grow 500ha of Onions, 400ha of Potatoes, 250Ha of Sugar Beet and 1300Ha of Cereals and Maize. Our equipment is modern and well-maintained including Fendt and John Deere Tractors, Grimme self-propelled harvesters, and SANDS sprayers.

We have full year placement and summer harvest roles available; we look to employ 8-9 college students each spring/summer.

Main duties would include tractor trailer work, destoning, telehandler/ forklift operation, irrigation and cultivations.

Our year long placement also gives the opportunity for students to work down in New Zealand during the winter months with an associate business, the Balle Brothers, a large vegetable focused business that we import onions into the UK from.
