Vacancies at the Farm
Fiveways Fruit Farm employs 30 staff throughout the summer. Peak time is between June and the end of September. Tasks include picking, planting, weeding, irrigation and tunnel work. Working on a farm is hard work and you must be fit and healthy to be successful at it.
Most tasks involve a certain amount of lifting or bending. All our soft fruit is grown under polythene which helps to reduce any disruption caused by poor weather and all the strawberries are grown on Table Tops which makes for easier picking.
Many of our staff return year on year and normally all vacancies are filled by March for the new season. However we sometimes need extra staff at short notice and we are always interested in experienced pickers so if you are looking for work it is always worth an e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org listing your name, age, nationality, and any details of any experience in horticulture together with the dates you are available.
We have 8 mobile homes on site in which most of our workers live. They are basic but comfortable and
contain 3 bedrooms, cooking facilities, a living room with a television and are shared by 3-4 people. Toilets, showers and internet access are also available.
