Our newest packhouse at Longforgan packs strawberries from our farm down the road at Blairgowrie, as well as broccoli for our Co-operative Food stores.
We have a team of over 50 people working at Longforgan, who are a mix of permanent pack house employees and temporary seasonal workers who come to pack at the busiest time of year. Our seasonal workers live in the accommodation at Blairgowrie (approx 14 miles away) in well equipped caravans or cabins. The farm has a recreational centre for workers, which includes a large communal kitchen with 20 cookers and a reception room with sofas, a table tennis table, television, a telephone and a computer with wireless internet access. This building also contains the showers for the cabin residents and coin operated washing machines.
Longforgan is 10km from the coastal city of Dundee, in beautiful Scottish countryside.
