Are you a Potential Harvest Helper?
Have you ever fancied picking up a bandeja and secateurs and playing vineyard worker for a day? Does being at the vineyard at 5am for sunrise send shivers of excitement down your spine? If so, you should sign up for the picking list for Olivet Grange? You can help harvest on one day of the 3 or 4 pick dates, and we’ll pay you in wine. Send an email to Kathleen, and we’ll keep you up to date on when we’re picking and what you need to do to participate. Remember this is dirty, physical work and you must be able to lift the bandeja (a shallow trayKathleen carrying a bandeja of Pinot Noir to the tractor. not disimmilar to a dish busing tray) with 50 to 70 lbs of fruit. The tray is then dumped into the ½ ton macro bins on the back of the tractor. Also, it helps if you are local, because we usually give only 48 hours notice. This is not for the faint of heart or weak of arms! One thing is does give you is an appreciation of the hard work people do in the fields everyday to ensure we have food on our tables.
