W. A. Porter Carmichael Farm

Carmichael fruit growers was started in 1995 by Willie and Angus Porter.

We grow strawberries, blackberries and blueberries.

  • All our strawberries are grown under cover on table-tops for easy picking.
  • Work includes picking, planting, tunnel construction and husbandry work.
  • We employ approximately 160 people in our temporary workforce.
  • 6-8 hours per day – working hours can vary depending on weather conditions and crop availability.
  • Most work is piecework. Meaning if you pick above the standard per hour you will get a bonus. The more you pick the more you earn.
