Mobilising workforces for New South Wales farm work in line with the national harvest calendar
Our NSW agricultural employment opportunities aren’t limited to farm jobs in the country – we also provide reliable workforces for New South Wales’ metropolitan and regional agribusinesses in Sydney, Newcastle, Orange, Wagga Wagga, Wollongong, Tamworth, Bathurst, Port Macquarie and Dubbo.
Essential commodities in New South Wales need reliable farm workers each year
From the Tweed in the north through to Tumbarumba in the south, Agri Labour Australia sources various types of farm workers to handle processing, production and packing for fruits and vegetables throughout the state.
在north-east coast of NSW and in the north-western area of the state, we work with a number of well-known agricultural clients in the nut industry (both on the harvesting and processing side).
Another important crop in NSW is berries. Principally grown in the northern, central and southern tablelands, as well as the mid-north coastal regions, berries are a vital commodity and picking requires specialised training. Agri Labour Australia regularly assembles and trains teams of farm workers to handle the delicate fruit and ensure production runs smoothly.
With a production area of around 13,000 hectares, another key New South Wales crop Agri Labour Australia delivers workforces for is citrus fruits. The Australian citrus industry is crucial to our economy in terms of exports because it is worth more than $200 million annually.
You can see why this commodity creates so many farm worker jobs in New South Wales because the state produces around 250,000 tonnes of fruit every year. This represents 40 per cent of total Australian citrus production and 36 per cent of citrus exports.
Farm labour for New South Wales’ famed wineries
Agri Labour Australia works with wine-maker clients across New South Wales to supply multi-faceted workforces. With 16 wine regions, NSW is the state with the most diverse wine-production climate and terroir in Australia.
Not many people realise that New South Wales produces around 500,000 tonnes or 30 per cent of the Australian wine crush. Our recruitment specialists regularly staff cool-climate vineyards in southern NSW (the Riverina) – which is New South Wales’ largest production region and is home to more than half of the state’s grapes – as well as wineries in the New England and Upper Hunter regions further north.
To support wine grape growers, Agri Labour Australia finds reliable staff across all of the state’s wine regions, which include the Canberra District, Cowra, Gundagai, Hastings River, Hilltops, the Hunter Valley, Mudgee, New England, Orange, Perricoota, Riverina, Shoalhaven Coast, Southern Highlands and Tumbarumba.
