Tasman Backpackers

They don’t guarantee jobs but try very hard to find anyone backpacking in Tasmania harvest work. They deal directly with 30 different farms and job placement agencies so if there are harvest jobs in the region they will probably know about them. Fruit Picking is weather dependent and therefore may start at different times of the year depending upon the season. Organic Farm weeding Commences in October Vegetable harvesting including Potatoes, Zucchini, Broccoli and Lettuces generally starts in Nov or Dec. A few packing jobs will start mid-Dec but most not until the first week of Jan. Apple thinning commences early in December. Cherry’s start in December or January depending on the weather. Raspberry’s start the day after Xmas. Carrot, Onion and Broccoli packing jobs start at the beginning of Jan and continue until June or July. Pears start in Feb, Apple picking in March and April. Swedes commence in June and continue until Sep or Oct.
