New Tool Freelance Farmhands Connects Farmers and Experienced Farm Workers
in Western Montana

The Community Food and Agriculture Coalition (CFAC) and Farm Link Montana
are excited to announce Freelance Farmhands
<https://www.farmlinkmontana.org/work-program/freelance-farmhands/>, a
farmer-driven directory that connects farmers with experienced farm workers
for short-term employment. This pilot tool addresses the challenge of
obtaining sufficient skilled, reliable, agricultural labor in Western

Farmers can use the list to find skilled farmhands, read about their work
experience, and contact a farmer reference if they want more information.
Farm workers with limited, or part-time availability can find opportunities
for short term work and keep their farm skills sharp.

Freelance Farmhands is a resource list of experienced farm workers who are
recommended by Western Montana farmers and ranchers and are available for
short-term work opportunities. By sharing references for former employees
to create this collaborative resource list, farmers can easily locate
experienced short-term workers when they need them. In turn, increased work
opportunities can increase the stability of the workforce.

Freelance Farmhands will only operate in Western Montana in 2018. If you
are interested in a similar resource in your area, look for the Freelance
Farmhands Season Report and Management Guide to be released in 2019.

Interested in being a part of Freelance Farmhands in Western Montana this
season? Learn more, apply for access to the list, and submit workers
on the Freelance
Farmhands Page

Link Montana.
