Gosh, working a season at Broadwater Farm is something everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime! It is an amazing way to enjoy being outdoors and working hard under the both the sun and the rain. The work is challenging and you will need to preserve through the first week and a bit before you find your ‘groove’. It’s something you have probably never done before and it will take some practice to get the picking method right. The thing that I enjoyed most about being on the farm is the sense of community and friendship among the pickers, as well as living and working together every day. I would highly recommend working a season at Broadwater Farm – and I intend to return! Thank you to all the staff at Broadwater Farm for the amazing season!

The farm and its surroundings are beautiful, and it’s refreshing to work outdoors in nature for a few months and disconnect from the fast-paced city life. The job is intense and demanding, so it’s good to come physically and mentally prepared for it. I really enjoyed working in a team and living together with other internationals, since you get to know each other pretty well. Overall, I would recommend this experience for anybody who wants to save some money while living in an international community and doesn’t mind to do an intense job. Many thanks for this opportunity, best of luck to you all.
Beautiful surroundings, working with people from all over Europe, a real nice vibe around the farm and Peter, Nicola, Sheila, Jim and even Ernie (haha) made the whole experience very pleasant and were great people to work for/under.
Will DEFINITELY consider coming back next year if things work out.
