As you might have heard, Hastings is known as the work capitol of New Zealand with over 80,000 harvest related jobs available from October – June. The owner of the Rotten Apple has established great working relationships with orchard owners and contractors in the surrounding area which will guarantee work for a large number of backpackers throughout the year.
