Current Positions Available:
We are looking for one or two people to join our ambrosia apple harvest for approximately two weeks starting around September 27, 2020. Apple picking is very physically demanding requiring pickers to go up and down a ladder carrying up to 30 lbs of apples. Pickers must move quickly but also handle fruit very delicately to prevent bruising. Harvest is very fast paced; therefore, successful pickers are able to work hard and stay motivated all day long. All of our varieties are colour picked requiring multiple picks (usually 2 or 3).
Wage: $14.60/ hour
