We grow all our strawberries up on tables and in tunnels so it is easier on the back but can still be hard work. Strawberries and Raspberry picking is the main job. Cherries also

We work 5 to 6 days per week during picking we do pick when it is raining and we do do other jobs in tunnel during the rain if there is any. Some time we do have to work out in the rain. We do have some other jobs (selling fruit helping around the farm) BUT everyone picks that is the main job. Hours can very but most of the time it is 8am until around 5.30/6pm until we finish the field we want to do.
