Picking

The picking process at out orchards is achieved entirely through manual labour. Our hardworking picking team consists of a mixture of locals and backpackers alike. For possible employment opportunities, please see the employment tab.

Different types of avocados have to be picked differently, for example Hass, can be snapped off without the stem while Shephard must be snipped to leave a segment of stem on the fruit. Avocados must be picked on fine days, as the rain increases the chances of the fruit bruising.
