How to Apply

P.G. Rix Farms is a 2500ha faming business based just North of Colchester, Essex.  Cropping includes Onions, Potatoes, Cereals, Peas, Sugar Beet and Maize.  Onion and Potato crops are all irrigated.  Main job roles include irrigation and tractor tailer work carting from self-propelled onion and potato harvesters. Spring work includes potato planting and destoning as well as JCB loader work.  We run a very modern fleet of Fendt and John Deere Tractors.  The farm employs 9-10 students each year for seasonal or placement work.  All housed in purpose built accommodation.  Very good rates of pay for hard working team players.

For placement students there is the opportunity to work in New Zealand from early November to late February for a large scale vegetable farm during their harvest period.  Students are also given time off over the Christmas period to travel the country. Website:


Experience in tractor trailer (e.g. corn carting) work required.  Telehandler experience beneficial but not essential.  Extensive training provided.
