Windermere Farm employs a large farm picking and packing team during the berry fruit season, which runs from late October until March with the peak of the strawberry and raspberry crops being picked over the November-January period.

We start interviewing for picking and packing positions from October onwards. Windermere Café and Store also employs an experienced skilled team from a range of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

We place a strong emphasis on skills, product knowledge and customer service and are always interested in employing passionate like-minded people.



94 Seasonal Employees, October 2020 to March 2021

Details & Application Form:

Thank you for considering summer work at Windermere Berry Farm.

This year Windermere will require 94 seasonal employees over the summer harvest period from October to March. The work at Windermere is physical in nature. Requires a positive work ethic and a “get it done” attitude.

Casual seasonal workers are paid hourly. The hourly rate for beginners and returning workers is assessed based on speed and skill level.

We aim to provide workers with 40 hours work per week. Although we are an Orchard, more than half our crop is covered so we usually can work around rain days. Contracts are work as work offered though.

Our expectation is that workers that join us in spring stay at least until 24 December. We discuss this at interview, but we prefer not to train people for just a couple of weeks work.

If you have ability to do tractor work or crop work or prefer working in our Café please put on your application form and we can also discuss these things at interview.

We run three seasonal worker teams at Windermere Berry Farm:
1. Picking Team.

2. Packing Team.

3. Café/Shop retail team.
