The Rare Hawaiian Honey Company is a producer of gourmet, organic honey varieties. Our customer base receives and expects the highest quality raw organic honey available. Producing honey of this quality requires a unique attention to detail. We are currently recruiting applicants for the position of Beekeeper.
We are looking for someone with commercial beekeeping experience. Although this position is primarily caring for bees, you will also be expected to help with other aspects of the honey business when necessary. Valuable skills include:
1) The ability to get along with others and work well within a team environment.
2) The ability to endure strenuous physical labor outdoors and indoors, sometimes in hot conditions, and be capable of repeatedly lifting boxes of honey that way 30 pounds or more.
3) Familiarity with operating forklifts and large trucks, carpentry skills and mechanical skills (capable of repairing equipment) would be advantageous in this position, but these skills can be learned on the job.
4) Grafting and rearing queens.
We are located on the Big Island of Hawaii with an office in Kamuela and a honey production facility near Kawaihae. Applicants without US citizenship will not be considered unless they already possess documentation that allows them to work and remain in the US. We offer competitive wages, commensurate with the applicants experience, along with health benefits and a profit sharing plan. Interested applicants should call our office and ask to be emailed a job application. When returning the application, please attach a resume and a letter detailing your work experience as it applies to our position. Our office is located at 66-1250 Lalamilo Farm Road, Kamuela HI 96743 (phone: 808-775-1000).
