The orchards and vineyards of New Zealand offer many different jobs – in the harvest season and other seasons as well.
Depending upon the season and the region you could:
- harvest fruit, vegetable or wine grapes
- pack and sort fruit and vegetables
- prune fruit trees and grape vines
- maintain crops
- be involved in summer pruning, planting vegetables or thinning fruit.
No previous experience is needed as all training is provided on-the-job. There is a wide range of positions available for young, old, skilled and unskilled people. All you need to be is fit, enthusiastic and reliable!
You will need a good level of fitness for outdoor work, and work may sometimes be irregular due to adverse weather conditions.
