About Us
In short, we supply, manufacture and/or source almost everything needed for mixed fruit, veggie & flower farms to thrive. We sell everything from greenhouses to tunnels to plastics to irrigation and beyond. Wolpin Enterprises is a company that strives to cultivate, inspire, and connect producers and consumers to positively impact food sovereignty through education and season extension resources. We partner with local and international agricultural suppliers and manufacturers to bring the best products to small and medium sized farms in the Atlantic region, while also consulting with farmers to design and manufacture products locally that are specifically suited to the Atlantic growing climate.

About the Role
We are seeking an enthusiastic and self motivated individual interested in becoming involved in this growing agricultural business. The Operations Manager will play an important role in meeting our customer’s needs and educating growers on our valuable products and services.

Our Idea of an Ideal Candidate:

While we’re flexible and open minded towards applicants, our current vision for an ideal candidate is someone who either farms part time or has several years of market garden style farming experience. They are someone who is sales driven and physically capable. It would be incredible to find someone who can show up to a farm on a delivery, identify ways to help that farm improve or extend their current approach, thereby generating sales while also helping the customer. Applicants with trades experience are welcome because assistance with structure installations would be appreciated.
