Seasonal Strawberry Picking

Strawberry Picking

  • Flexible working hours and days
  • Based in Hahndorf – Adelaide Hills

Each Strawberry Season (mid-late November through to mid-late May) we are looking for energetic staff to either pick our strawberries ready for our manufacturing team to use in our products throughout the year

We have made a short video to try and explain what Strawberry Picking is.

The key things to know are:

  • We pay piece work rates in line with the Horticulture Award.  The minimum piece work rate is $1.20 per kilo that is picked.
  • There are no junior rates when paying piece work, the more you pick or hull, the more you earn.
  • An average worker can pick 25 kilo’s per hour, some are able to pick significantly more and some less.
  • We are starting to pick work at either 7.00am or 7.30am, but that can be flexible if you communicate with us. Generally, shifts are about 7 -8 hrs in length.
  • We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE new staff to start with shorter shifts (5 hours) for the first week or so, this allows your body to get used to using different muscles, Strawberry picking is a lot of kneeling down and squatting to pick strawberries.
  • Picking work is Monday to Friday.
  • You will need to be physically fit and be able to bend, lift and move unrestricted
