Testimonial from two English back packers
"This could be your lucky day" was a well anticipated text message we recieved from Kevin Corbett after 4 days of unsucessful job hunting. We began work at Lawson's in the 'chilly' packhouse on day 1 of the blueberry season with 11 other new faces from all walks of life. Quickly we became a part of the team and were welcomed into what we later realised was a warm and friendly family business. From misty mornings picking out in the paddock to packing juicy blueberries to be sent all over the world, from sunny afternoons driving tractors to dusty onion packing, we did it all. But more importantly for us we did it all with a light hearted work ethic and by the end we did it all with our friends. We really enjoyed our 3 months working at True Earth and would highly reccomend Lawson's. If seasonal work experiences is what you are looking for then this is your place... From the 'Proper' English Pommes Kaylea and Lucy.
Hawkes Bay is known for its sunny climate, sheltered coastal plains, gorgeous beaches and long-established vineyards.
Add to the wine, the huge gourmet food industry blossoming in support and you have ample reason to tread the Wine Country Food Trail. From the delicate asparagus and strawberries of Spring, sweet corn and stone-fruit of Summer, apples and avocados of Autumn (Fall) to the vegetables and citrus fruits of Winter. Literally hundreds of fine restaurants, cafes and wineries will break down anyone's resistance.
