Our orchards currently produce nine apple varieties including our IP varieties such as Breeze, Sonya and Cheekie.

Orchard work is available all year round for a limited number of employees, but we require a large number of seasonal workers from November through to May during picking season.

It doesn't matter if you're a local or not, we can help you find accomodation close to work if you're moving down for the season. With accomodation on some of our orchard sites, and partnerships with local backpackers, there's plenty of space for you here.
