STAFF PROFILES

Here are some of the permanent staff at Jolly Berries.

LORRAINE

LORRAINE left another blueberry farm to work for Jolly Berries. Lorraine has 30 years experience working in blueberries and is the Harvest and Picking Supervisor. She has a great ability to work with different people and she is the reason the fruit quality is so high at Jolly Berries. Lorraine knows exactly when the fruit is ripe and everybody that comes to work here calls her Grandma and loves her. Lorraine is also an excellent pruner and comes to work rain, hail or shine.

Lorraine likes golf, four wheel driving, black coffee and chocolate cake. Thanks for the great fun in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.

MERRIL

MERRIL has been working for Jolly Berries since December 2010. Merril left her job at another blueberry farm to help the new owners at Jolly Berries. Merril is Assistant Shed Supervisor and Second's Manager. When we get fruit that requires extra attention or sorting it goes straight to Merril. Merril is also a gun pruner and will have a go at anything (except picking)!  But that's alright as we can't do without her in the shed. Merril now helps with the sauce making and labelling.

Merrils says "she just goes to work, does what she is supposed to, then goes home. Nothing more". Merril also says "Take the good with the bad, and keep going". Thanks Merril for your positive attitude and for coming to work at Jolly Berries.
