Our kiwifruit harvest season starts in March and when we hit our peak, we need around 1,500 people to help us pack the millions of fruit produced by Trevelyan’s growers. 

When the main season winds up in June, we provide opportunities for re-pack and orchard work for those who wish to continue in the kiwifruit industry.
