Current Positions Available:

Picker

The perfect post-cherry, pre-ski season job!

Apple picking is very physically demanding requiring pickers to go up and down a ladder carrying up to 30 lbs of apples. Pickers must move quickly but also handle fruit very delicately to prevent bruising. Harvest is very fast paced; therefore, successful pickers are able to work hard and stay motivated all day long. All of our varieties are colour picked requiring multiple picks (usually 2 or 3).
