    Struggling to remember exactly but the jam factory at Tiptree, Essex used to employ a lot of pickers who would turn up in Motorhomes and also Peak farms at stoke by nayland for the apples

    Will ask details to my son Yannick who has done , corn in Ariège (departement 09)and tobacco leaves (I think in center of France , but might mistake so will ask). I know that there's a lot of apples picking in Gers (departement 32) and as well in Ariège , then you will have plums picking in the same area but as well a lot near Agen (departement 47). they make what we call "pruneaux" with those plums.

    Amicalement

    Looks like computerised translation. What is your native language Octavio?

    You can't pick fruit unless you are Polish. Even the travellers don't get a look in these days!:BigGrin:
