Best time to find fruit picking work in Richmond

Richmond grows a range of vegetables and fruits. You can often find work picking one of the fruit crops in December to January.

Also grown in the area is a large number of vegetables. You can almost always find work during January to June.

From July to November you may be able to find work picking vegetables, but it is not peak season and I recommend you organise a job before going in these months.
