The flowers are pollinated and now the fruit needs room to grow - so we need your help!

Johnsons Cottage is a family owned orchard that has been growing fruit for over 100 years - we grow great fruit and take care of our staff : )

Roxburgh is a cool little town only a couple of hours away from Queenstown, Dunedin, Invercargill and the coast.  If you enjoy the outdoors, fancy having cycling, fishing, walking, and Central Otago on your doorstep, then this is the place for you.  The Catlins aren't far away either if you feel like having a sea visit and checking out the wildlife.

Thinning is a pretty straight forward job, but you do need to be fit, able, thorough, happy to work as a team, and able to take directions.    It can be monotonous, so self motivation is helpful!  It does involve using an orchard ladder, so you need to be happy with climbing this and obviously with working outside.  The job is around 40 hours a week, but is weather dependent and may involve weekends.

Job Requirements

Must be fit and not afraid of heights as ladder work will be involved.
