Every year we need approx. 80 people to help us thin, harvest and pack our crops. Work commences mid October when we begin thinning apricots. This involves removing unwanted fruits to enable remaining fruits to size. This is followed by apple thinning which finishes just before Christmas.
We begin our cherry harvest straight after New Year. This is followed by apricot, peaches and nectarine harvest finishing approx mid February. Apple harvest begins end February and runs until end April.
During harvest period we may work 6 days per week and extended days in the Packhouse.
Full training is provided with good working conditions available.
All applicants should be physically fit and must hold a current working holiday visa.
