Prepare agricultural products for market on the farm where they were grown  ?

None of these clearly applies to my organization.

You selected an Industry Wage Order (8 or 13) that relates to the processing of agricultural products. Because Wage Order requirements for agricultural enterprises are rather complex, it's a good idea to take a closer look at your situation.

Please select one of the following in relation to your main business purpose:
I handle agricultural products grown by someone else, including packing of a purchased crop or cooperative warehousing, cooling, grading, sorting, packing, ginning, etc.  ?

I have a farm and I process my own crop right on the farm either in a moving packing plant or in a permanent structure on the premises.  ?

  •  Wage Order #13: Industries Preparing Agricultural Products for Market, on the Farm (English | Spanish)

Available for purchase (Members & Nonmembers)

Neither of these options fits my situation exactly. 

Because none of the Industry Orders match your organization's primary business activity, you need to review the Occupation Orders for the one that most closely corresponds to your company's primary business purpose.

As its primary business activity, does your organization:
Offer professional, technical, clerical mechanical services?  ?
