About Agriculture Jobs in Montana
We feature the best agriculture jobs in Montana with new jobs being posted weekly.
A visit to Montana is a visit to the true American West, where vast skies, fresh air and crystal clear waters welcome you. There’s no shortage of nature in its purest form, as Big Sky State is home to Yellowstone and Glacier National Parks, as well as Triple Divide Peak, where water flows freely into three separate oceans.
The abundance of natural resources creates an extremely fertile environment for Montana’s largest industry: agriculture. The state has nearly 28,000 farms and ranches spread over 59.7 million acres. They are exceptionally large, averaging 2,134 acres each. Producing a wide variety of staples, wheat, and beef tops the Montana list.
However, you will also find sweet cherries, sugar beets, seed potatoes and hay, just to name a few. Montana is the national leader in the production of certified organic wheat, dried peas, lentils and flax and ranks second in the United States in the honey and pollination sector.
In total, Big Sky State’s agricultural industry contributes an average of $ 5.2 billion to the economy annually.
