As we enter our busiest vegetable production period we are looking to recruit new team members for Picking & Packing roles. The harvest period is from June to November.

Picking tasks include planting, harvesting and packing of a range of vegetables, as well as general farm labouring tasks. These may include irrigation maintenance, tying plants to stakes, preparing seedlings and other farm maintenance tasks. Picking employees are expected to be versatile and able to take on different roles throughout the season.

Packing tasks include grading (sorting) vegetables, packing, moving crates of vegetables and monitoring equipment. Other tasks will include lifting and stacking crates of vegetables (approx 10kgs) continuously onto pallets, wrapping and labelling the produce. 

The work you will be doing is hard, physically demanding and very repetitive. It will involve a lot of bending, lifting and will require you to be on your feet for 8-10 hours per day. You need to be fit and in good physical condition to do this work and we will give preference to applicants who have undertaken similar work previously.
