Last year alone, Hall Hunter's bountiful harvest exceeded 8,000 tonnes of quintessentially British soft fruits, including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, proudly supplying the nation's leading supermarkets.

The company is on the lookout for fruit pickers who not only bring a wealth of industry experience but are also eager to contribute to their thriving community.

The company boasts an impressive 70% employee retention rate, offering competitive remuneration, comprehensive training, and superior on-site accommodation to ensure a rewarding and comfortable work experience.

"Harvesting fruit is immensely satisfying, yet it demands physical resilience," explains Harry Hall, the Managing Partner of Hall Hunter. "We're committed to providing our team with ample opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment during their well-deserved breaks."

Nestled in the scenic southern British countryside, Hall Hunter's farms - Sheeplands and Heathlands in Berkshire, along with Tuesley in Surrey - provide not only a picturesque backdrop but also a secure, enriching, and lucrative setting for seasonal work. The farms are conveniently located, offering easy access to London and other renowned British landmarks.

Seasonal workers benefit from complimentary transportation to nearby towns and supermarkets, enabling them to explore and enjoy their surroundings on their days off.

"We endeavour to cultivate a familial atmosphere across our farms, fostering new friendships and camaraderie," Hall continues. "Our on-site accommodation is a hub of social activity, with a plethora of recreational options available.

"We also organise a variety of excursions and events, including day trips to car boot sales, sports tournaments, parties, and BBQs in each picker village, providing a splendid opportunity for our workers to bond and fully immerse themselves in the experience."

Innovation is at the heart of Hall Hunter's operations, with a pioneering crop system that positions strawberry plants on elevated tabletops, enabling pickers to harvest more efficiently and effectively.

Accommodation on each farm is thoughtfully provided, with pickers having the option to stay in well-appointed 'picker villages'. These fully-furnished mobile homes are maintained to the highest standards, complete with Wi-Fi, leisure facilities, a canteen offering affordable meals, and a shop stocking a selection of Eastern European products, all designed to make the seasonal work experience as enjoyable and fulfilling as possible.
