Bernard Miller

Farm manager, Miller’s Farm

Beavercreek, Ohio

Dear Bernard Miller,

My name is Nettie Maldonado, and I’m writing today to express my excitement about finding your flyer for a job opening as a farmhand at Miller’s Farm. As a farmhand with years of experience tending to the corn crop, I’m pleased to send you my application.

For the last five years, I’ve worked across various farms in Indiana, Illinois and Ohio, where I used my patience and attention to detail to harvest corn and soy from the fields. I’ve harvested slowly by hand and quickly using harvester equipment, which I’m skilled in repairing in the field. My ability to work well with a team has also benefited me and led to my promotion to senior farmhand at my most recent job at a small family farm.

Working on family-owned and operated farms has taught me that quality and care are as important as the quantity we produce. I put a lot of thought into my work and understand how to take care of the most popular Midwestern crops to ensure customers get the best produce.

Overall, I believe my dedication to farming, knowledge of harvesting techniques and ability to work well with other farmhands makes me a great choice for a position as a farmhand with Miller’s Farm. I appreciate the time you’ve taken to read my application, and I look forward to hearing from you.
