No contractor = decent rates of pay (Romeo Apple Orchard)

3/ 5

It’s really hard work, the bag of apples weighed up to 17 kg. You go up and down the ladder al the time.

You get a Health and Safety introduction on the first day and that’s paid hourly.
The picking is piece work, paid fairly well depending on how fast you pick. ($33 – $41 a bin, an hour and a half to two hours work). You can apply direct through the Facebook site so no payment to contractors.

8 hour days, but you only get a day off if it rains.

The hostel nearly by was really dirty so we took the campsite. This was okay for the price, but really cold at night.
