Simon from the United Kingdom had the following to say about his time working at Woodhaven Gardens on his Working Holiday Visa:

I've worked at Woodhaven for four months now. I started as a harvester for the spinach team, and am now the driver for the team. I stay in the on-site accommodation provided and it's great value for money and rent is deducted direct from my pay. By staying here I’ve met loads of new people, and the facilities are great too. I would recommend Woodhaven as a great company to work for; we are like one big family. John is a fantastic person to work for. He's very kind and friendly, and takes the time to get to know each colleague.
