Broadwater Farm

Broadwater Farm (Howard Chapman Ltd.) is located in the beautiful and historic county of Kent, in the south east of England. Our farm grows apples.

We are renowned for supplying top quality fruit to UK supermarkets. If you think you would enjoy working at Broadwater, then come and join our team.

The work is divided into three courses. The first course will start in early July concentrating on thinning the apples. The second course will start at the end of August to harvest our main crop of apples and the third course will start mid September to harvest our later variety apples.  We ask each picker to stay with us until, at least, 11th October, to ensure that our main harvest is completed, but there will be work available until the end of October for anyone who can stay longer.

The work is paid on an hourly rate of £8.21 per hr (£10.26 per hr overtime).   A normal working week would be Monday to Friday, working 8 hours each day and 5 hours on Saturday.  You will be paid weekly into a UK bank account (if you do not have an account in the UK, there are other payment options, which we will discuss with you at your farm induction).

The farm’s customers demand the highest quality of produce and so expect the team to be very diligent in their work and to pick to the highest standard of quality.

The work on the farm can be enjoyable and very rewarding.  To benefit from this, however, you will need to put in hard work and listen carefully to all instructions you are given.  Much of the picking you will be doing is physically demanding so do expect a few aches and pains after the first week’s work.  These should reduce over time as you become more accustomed to the work and you will get fitter!

“I met some lovely people from all over Europe and some other countries. I loved working in the fresh air, amongst the trees. I also loved driving the tractors.” – Amy (England)
