Fruit Picking and Harvesting Jobs in England

England is a country that has had it's backbone built around the agricultural industry. This Island nation has a proud tradition of farming and once you get out of the major cities of London, Manchester and Liverpool you will find endless miles of countryside offering all kinds of fruit picking jobs, harvesting work and seasonal farm employment.

Fruit picking jobs in England generally run from late summer (July/August) through to late September/early October. You will find all kinds of different seasonal harvesting jobs in England from low skilled manual jobs picking directly from fields, trees and orchards. To more skilled positions operating machinery that requires extensive training.

Harvesting work can be found throughout this country and is not isolated to one certain area, so whether you want to explore the northern part of the country and venture further a field to Scotland or if you want to look to find a position down by the south coast you should be able to find exactly what you are looking for throughout the nation.

Depending on the size of the farm and what the employer has to offer you may be able to find jobs offering housing, often farms will work with local B&B's or Public Houses (Pubs) to get affordable accommodation for their seasonal workers.

The main harvesting work in England consists of regular vegetables such as carrots, lettuce, turnips etc and fruit grown on trees such as apples and pears. You will not find many jobs harvesting exotic fruits simply because of the climate in this country and the types of fruits that are grown.

One great thing about spending a season working as a fruit picker in England is that the nation is very small geographically so it is easy for you to explore different parts of the country on your weekends off or once you are finished with your employment and have a bunch of money saved up from all of your hard work!

Like most countries England and the rest of the UK has strict work restrictions in place so it is important to check out these rules and see if you are eligible to work in a fruit picking job. There are a number of organizations which help seasonal workers complete the required paperwork so that they can fill these summer jobs.
