When we first began living full time in our RV, I did a ton of research on how to bring in extra money while on the road. One thing that turned up was the Sugar Beet Harvest.
You see, sugar is not only made from sugar cane, but also from sugar beets. During the month of October in the states of Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota, the harvest of sugar beets for the season begins. And they need lots of seasonal help!
Why do the Sugar Beet Harvest?
The money promised is really good. You are generally looking at 2 to 3 weeks of work, 12 hour days with no days off once the harvest begins. Any time over 8 hours is paid time and a half, Saturdays are time and a half, and Sundays are double time. Basically, in a 2-3 week period, you have the potential of earning what you might make in a whole season of working at a campground.
