Fairfield Orchards Ltd is a progressive horticultural operation specialising in apple and kiwifruit production with properties based in the Motueka region where we grow, pack, and store fruit for the export market.

We offer a variety of seasonal work and permanent job opportunities. We value the people who choose to work with us and offer a good hourly rate, accommodation, support staff, and social opportunities.

We are looking for picking staff to pick apples in our orchards right now. Initially on wages as you train, you will move onto piecework (contract) rates as you get faster. Picking is a physical job and a certain level of fitness is required. There may be picking jobs available on our mobile picking platforms.

Requirements: All applicants will need to have photo ID and proof you are eligible to work in NZ. We have quality accommodation available in central Motueka.

We look forward to working with you!
