Boddington's Berries - Strawberry Specialists - Premium High-Fruit Preserves
Vacancies Boddington’s Berries is a third-generation family business; we have been growing strawberries for over 70 years and producing high fruit content preserves for over 20. Our preserves are made in small batches, by hand, on the farm in Mevagissey.

The fresh fruit season runs from April to July whilst the preserves are produced all year round. The core business serves the catering trade for cream teas; therefore, our peak selling time is through the summer.

It is an exciting time for the business, with continued growth and change.

Seasonal Fruit Pickers - The picking season starts in early May and finishes in late July.

We now only run a small group of workers - be aware that strawberry picking is hard, physical work, so you need to be fit, able, willing and prepared for lifting, carrying and bending for long periods. You will also be required to comply with food hygiene regulations and high standards of quality control.

Our picking day begins at 6 am and finishes when the day's orders are done. This may be as early as 9 am or as late as 12 pm, depending on the number of the day's orders and the state of the crop.

Extra work may be available for top performers!

If you are interested in joining our friendly picking team, please email us expressing interest along with the days you would be able to work at info@boddingtonsberries.co.uk. Thank you.
