Ask for industry recommendations

Most people will know of some reliable workers looking for positions. This ensures all employees come with field-specific recommendations. So, don’t be afraid to ask around.

It’s also possible to search the candidates on offer. This allows you to cherry-pick the people who sound most suited to what you have to offer.

Trust in agencies

At the very least, it may be worth signing up for agriculture-specific job agencies. These match you with candidates and send them your way, often on a temporary basis. This is beneficial because it again ensures every worker comes with a recommendation. You also have the choice of not renewing their contracts if you don’t feel comfortable.
