The work

Thinning is removing small apples in a bunch to give the rest space to reach apple perfection. You’ll be trained and supported as you learn the ropes by one of our orchard legends. You’ll be working in one of our diverse teams and we know you’ll be made to feel welcome from day one.

  • Busy is your happy place and you like to get your hands dirty and keep active
  • You have reliable transport (our orchards are spread across Hawke’s Bay) with a minimum of a Learners licence
  • You have the right to work in New Zealand and can pass pre-employment checks


What we offer

  • A great team who recognises we are stronger together
  • Recognition when you do a great job
  • Competitive hourly rate of $22.10
  • Referral bonus of $100 if you refer a friend who stays with us to the end of the Thinning season
  • Hosted weekend social events to bring people together, get to know each other and have fun

What makes us successful is our people who come from a wide range of backgrounds, with different skills and unique ideas. We know that to grow premium apples, you need premium people.
