Dear Mr / Mrs

I came across your job posting and I believe my experience in animal farming and crops cultivation coupled with my general farm maintenance expertise are a right fit. I have enclosed my resume for your review and consideration.

Having worked as farm hand for the past eight years and currently working in the USA crop settings, I am eager to bring the following qualifications to your farm:

• Skilled in sowing, fertilizing and crop harvesting

• Operational knowledge of farm animal breeding

• Well versed in using farm machinery and ensuring its proper maintenance

• Physical stamina and ability to lift heavy loads

• Basic math skills with ability to read and write

• Familiar with produce cleaning and bundling procedures

The above mentioned competencies could come in handy not only in maintaining the existing crop cultivation department of the farm but will also be very helpful in setting up the animal farming department as per your plan.

I would like a chance to speak with you and discuss how my training, experience and skills could prove to be an asset at your farm. Please call me at870 821 202/ 870-***-**** or to communicate a convenient interview date and time.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
