Everything you need to know to prepare your apple picking season in New Zealand. Location, period, bin rates, special tips

Don’t miss the early season!
Even compared to Australia, New Zealand is a small cherry producer with only one major production area : Central Otago. There are some early orchards in the North Island around Hastings, and in the South Island around Blenheim, but they are quite small and all together, they represent only a few picking jobs : that’s why it’s so important to contact them 2 or 3 month in advance to book one!
