Farm, Fruit Picking & Packing
There are many agricultural jobs
available to working travellers planting, peeling, packing and
picking fruit and vegetables.
Hours can be long and it's often
necessary to work everyday to get the crops picked, therefore earnings
can be lucrative.
Some farmers pay by the hour but
for harvest work many pay you for what you pick (piece rate) so
you need to be reasonably fit and hard working to make it pay.
Accommodation is often provided, although usually fairly basic
Although we do advertise a number
of opportunities on this site we have found that many small scale
farmers advertise their vacancies locally or by word of mouth so
if you are looking for more of this type of work it would be a
good idea to ask around
in Hostels and Pubs that farmers frequent.
