Our harvest and packing season begins in late January and continues until the end of June each year.  We have harvesting and packing vacancies for both short and long term duration.

Our pack-house and cold-stores are located on the Eastern boundary of Hastings.  We are within ten minutes walking of both Hastings City and the Havelock North village which both have their own unique characters and ample accommodation available.
