"I've worked at Loddington Farm for over a year now, and it's hard but very rewarding. I've made some great friends, and the beautiful orchards are a great place to enjoy nature."
RATES & TARGETS
We pay very competitive rates of pay and offer plenty of work. Many jobs, such as picking, are paid ‘piece rate’. So the more you do, the more you earn (as long as the quality is high!). Good harvest workers can earn £400/week, often more, and most people earn much more than the living wage. Everyone is expected to pick a target number of kilos each hour. This changes depending on the density of the crop, the weather, and the time of year.
Manual work involves lifting, bending and twisting as you help us get the fruit picked in time. So being fit and healthy – or willing to improve your fitness – is essential!
