Our Workers

Minimum 1 week – length by agreement

We employ locals for our picking during the season and also employ backpackers from Emerald Backpackers working Hostel for various jobs throughout the year.

We are an active host member of Willing Workers On Organic Farms (WWOOF) and have hosted about 100 workers since 2005. These workers are seeking experience in the Australian way of life and on a working Organic Farm.
