The starting date is dependent on when fruit ripens. This is impacted by the weather. Generally the season starts from early November and runs through until the end of the year. It is possible that we may start picking in the final week of October and continue through to the start of January. We keep successful applicants informed with emails.
Ideally, we would love people to commit to the entire season as it allows us to develop a great relationship with our team. However, we understand that people may have other commitments. Please let us know your availability as early as possible.
In short, yes! If you are travelling with a group of people, they will all need to apply. Please let us know in the initial email who you are travelling with so we can keep your applications together. If planning on staying at our on-farm accommodation, you will all need to be employed with us.
The closest train stations are at Harden (from Sydney) and Cootamundra (from Melbourne).

A vehicle is important as we are located about 10km from Young which is where you will find shops and restaurants. We also have 2 orchards and you will be required to work at both locations for picking fruit (Packing is all done at Fairfield's Orchard).
