Did you try googling?

https://www.google.ch/?gws_rd=ssl#q=...land+farm+jobs

Anyway, Idefix, what makes you think he'd stay in a job for more than 5 minutes if he's as lazy as you say.
Yeah I tried googling but google gives absolutely no information on an agency or a place where an application can be submitted. I would love to see him getting fired from grape picking! What kind of a dumb ass do you have to be to get fired from a job like that?!

You could put an ad in the 'Terre et Nature' Romandie magazine- the magazine for farmers. Those jobs are normally applied for around Easter though.
Thank you, I have yet to find a place where I can enroll him or get info on when he could start etc. I can not believe this is so hard to find.

Re: Temporary work in picking grapes, strawberries etc

I know that before in other countries & presume Switzerland is similar. One man would bring a team to the farmer from his home country for the season.

If you are out and about, might be worth asking in an Agency, the kind that hires office workers etc, as if they do not do it, they may be able to point to someone who does.

If an EFer is out picking their own fruit where they pay by the weight, perhaps they could ask the farmer?

I would be interested to know.

This young man may surprise you, if you find him the job, as he might enjoy the camaradie, despite the back breaking work.

A couple of enrollment sites I found: this one will reduce travel costs for you and this one offers a little bit more structure
