If you were here today you could work today. Next week there will be work but no guarantee you will be able to start immediately. January work includes the last of the apple thinning, blueberry picking, early nectarine & peach picking, vineyard leaf-plucking and netting, as well as plant nursery and casual work in juice and mineral water factories etc. In February the main harvest will start with apples, but no date. Harvest starts when the fruit is ready. If you want to work in packhouses you should apply NOW not wait for February. ... See MoreSee Less

Apple thinning is about to start in full force. The big companies are having recruiting and orientation days. Orchard and vineyard work already. Much more plus berries and other crops soon. ... See MoreSee Less
