”As the name suggests, we like to have a bit of fun and see the lighter side of life but equally, we take strawberries very seriously.Allan & Marcus Ashley
With a background in Agricultural Science I always wanted to get involved in farming but never had the opportunity. Then, about six years ago, with the help of my recently retired school-teacher father - Allan, we took a leap and planted 100,000 strawberry plants.
We're a family team that works closely together. We pride ourselves on our relationships with the staff and getting to know everyone by name.
It’s a great atmosphere in the field and packing shed during harvest, when you can hear everyone’s music and all the laughter.
Why Pick & Pack With Us?
6-6:30am to 2-3pm (pick) 8:30-10am to afternoon (pack)
Aim for two days on one day off.
If we get enough people this is our ideal plan to ensure everyone gets a bit of time off.
We have a relationship with some local hostels in Bundaberg, with one only 4kms away.
We can help link you up with contacts if this is something you are interested in
Hostels can provide transport if necessary. It’s better to have your own but there are options if you don’t.
We provide you with gloves and hair nets We love a clean farm so we ask everyone to bring with them what they need for the day. Sometimes to help on a cold rainy winter day we provide hot chocolate to warm up and sweeten the day for all our workers.
We have early variety so start late April Go until Mid October
