Orchard Manager, 10/2005
to Current Cabral Farms – 17521 Williams Avenue Hilmar,
CA As orchard manager I am responsible for 8 acres of Organic Asian Pears trees and various other fruits. I plan out spray regimentation for insects and other fungal and bacterial diseases. I irrigate trees and monitor soil moisture as well as monitor nutrient levels to ensure abundant harvest. I also spread compost, mow, and prune trees. I help pick fruit and organize work force. I load fruit boxes on truck, where I then deliver them to local network of fruit stands within 50 miles of the farm. I deliver fruit boxes to desired locations where I give receipt to farm stand owner and collect money. I keep records of profits versus costs and expenses. Constant research is required to maintain organic and sustainable standards for trees as well as cost effective alternatives to standard farming practices. As orchard manager focused on sustainability, it is required to do work and research in orchard 365 days a year. To do this I must be well organized and flexible to the changing orchard conditions. This ensures best results in productivity, efficiency, and profitability. I also help to organize work force fore orchard harvesting, pruning and other tasks.
