Have two Helpx guests who have work permits and want to do apple picking to make some money......do the orchards supply lodging? and do they pay in cash or do they need a bank account? Any comments appreciated......
This link lists the orchards round Hastings, there are more in Central HB as well, refer to link at bottom of this page.

Ducks, (George, Kate and Emma)
and 2 quail...
I have just had 2 helpxers staying who also want picking work and have gone to the Hawkes Bay as they found that trying to get the work from a distance was too hard.
I think they found somewhere that was going to charge them $30 per week to stay - they have a camperwagan to sleep in. Provide their own food, but communal facilities like kitchen and showers/toilets available. They were happy with this arrangement.
