‘Our success has been built on the foundations of good people working within our team to complete the farms’ goals’ 

Thomas Busby, Grower

Working at Dearnsdale Fruit

 

Our aim is always to offer an enjoyable working experience for all our seasonal staff. Upon arrival we provide a full induction and training, so that all new team members understand our processes to maintain the productivity of the farm whilst working in a fair and safe environment. 

Seasonal work can yield great earning potential with opportunities available to work 6 days a week.

Jobs range from in the field roles such as husbandry and harvesting to driving and packing work, as well as more specialist positions such as irrigation managers.

There are also opportunities for some seasonal jobs to become permanent roles.
