For example strawberry season offers different kinds of jobs – you could start early in the spring or in the summer. Work consist of tiding, planting, picking, sales preparation, packing, taking care of plants and fields.
Strawberry picking starts at the end of June and in some parts of Finland in July, so it is a good idea to keep an eye on employee needs of the farms along the season. Some varieties are harvested in August. Beginning of the fall there is preparing work for next season. In the fall also begins the harvesting and packing of for example root vegetables and there could be work available until December.
