Introduction to Farm Hand

Overview

Training for Saskatchewan farms

Are you interested in working on a farm but didn’t grow up on one? Do you have a farming operation with new employees who need introductory training?

The Farm Hand course provides the basic skills for work during the busy spring season. Participants will get hands-on training needed to work on a grain farm in Saskatchewan.
