Larkin Bros., Farm in New Glasgow & processing company in Crapaud
Jobs: General Labourers
Larkin Bros. is a poultry farm and processing company owned by brothers Paul and Harvey Larkin. They have been raising turkeys and chickens for 20 years. Their birds are grain fed without medication or antibiotics. In recent years, Larkin Bros has added many new products such as sausages, burgers, and meatballs.
The busy time of year is May to December, when staff numbers rise from five to 10 to 15. They sell about 1,500 turkeys for Thanksgiving and about 3,500 for Christmas. The slower winter months are spent caring for the poultry as they grow and planning for the busy times.
“The business grows a little bit each year and it seems to me people are more food conscious and want to buy local and eat healthy,” says Paul Larkin. “This has really helped our business grow.
“We are looking for labourers in both our farm and plant. We are looking for people who are very versatile and are willing to commit to working from May to December. We are willing to train.”
