Apple Pickers needed at Soetemans Treesweet Orchards

Fruit pickers harvest, sort and gather fruit with their hands. Some use small knives or tools to cut fruit from branches and vines. To harvest some fruits, such as apples, oranges and peaches, you must be able to climb a ladder, remove the fruit and place it in your satchel or basket without injury. Other fruits, such as strawberries, grow on low-lying plants, so you must have the endurance and strength to bend over for long periods of time. Fruit harvesters must be available to work seasonal jobs when fruit is ripe for picking. You must be able to withstand inclement weather, such as wind or rain, if fruit needs to be harvested immediately. Orchard managers and farm owners don’t want their crops to spoil or rot. A formal education isn’t required to pick fruit, and you’ll likely receive on-the-job training.
