Its products reach domestic and international markets while maintaining the highest standards within the industry. Golden Eagle Farm is part of the Golden Eagle Group, which operates a variety of recreational and agricultural businesses within the Greater Vancouver Area and Washington State.
An incredibly opportunity exists to drive the strategic business and operational activities of a major player in the blueberry and cranberry farming sector. Reporting directly to the ownership of Golden Eagle Group, the General Manager will be responsible for both the strategic business and the operational plans of the farm and processing plant, and lead the drive for unquestioned quality control throughout its operations.
