Brownrigg Agriculture is a large, progressive farming business with operations across livestock and cropping, based 20 minutes south of Hastings, Hawkes Bay.

  • A current full Class 1 driver’s licence with a good driving history.
  • A solid work ethic with a practical approach to problem solving.
  • A willingness to embrace technology and precision agriculture.

What we can offer you:

  • Further training to meet your goals (e.g. licence classes/endorsements, Growsafe qualification).
  • Top notch furnished, shared accommodation.
  • Modern John Deere tractors and precision farming equipment.
  • Guaranteed hours.
  • Six-day week roster.
  • Competitive hourly rate.
