Almond Recruitment and Almond harvest commences in February and usually continues through until April. Almonds are the biggest of the three harvests and takes place in various states and towns including Renmark South Australia and the expansive Sunraysia region of Victoria.


The work for rice harvest commences in January when there is plenty of activity in preparation for the actual harvest which starts in mid-February when large rice receivals begin. The rice harvesting season usually goes through until May and is located in NSW in the towns of Leeton, Deniliquin and Colembally.


Hops harvest starts in February and lasts through until April and is located in Australia’s beautiful alpine area of Myrtleford in Victoria.
