What’s the pay like?
Our seasonal harvest work guarantees the UK living wage, which for 2022 is £9.50 per hour.
In addition to this, we provide performance bonuses for the best workers.
Blueberries are easy to pick and there are no thorns. There is not much bending down and you don’t need to be strong.
We employ less people at the beginning and end of the season, with peak numbers employed between mid July and mid August.
All of our bushes are outside, so the bonus for that is that we’re working in natural air and not under plastic. The downside is that we are weather dependent and we don’t work when its raining. In 2021, we lost 4 full days in the whole season to rain.
