Premier Horticulture – Athabasca

Premier Horticulture Athabasca harvests peat moss in the Athabasca area from 4 different peat bogs. The peat is dried and then shipped to their packaging facility in Olds, AB, which is also under contract with the UFCW. This is an outdoor operation that is also seasonal work for most of the employees. They normally operate from April to the end of October or from when the ground thaws to when it starts to freeze again.
