Woman earns £150 a day from only flowers

A woman is making £150 a day doing a job that nobody would have imagined.

Tania Holmes, from Bolsover in Derbyshire, not far from Sheffield, first came across the idea of picking flowers when she lived a 10-minute drive away from a farm. While visiting the farm, where she used to buy soft drinks, she discovered elderflower picking.

And during Covid that discovery became a lifeline, as she and many, began picking flowers for extra income. Tania, who had lost her job, began working the job as a side hustle reports Derbyshire Live.

The 46-year-old has gone on to enjoy lucrative returns from the job. Explaining, she said: “I used to love picking elderflowers to help the team from Belvoir Farm make their cordial, each year during the harvest. It was a lovely way to get fit and enjoy the beautiful countryside, but during Covid it changed from being a fun and relaxing pastime to an essential lifeline for earning extra funds”

Fruit picking has always been a good way for people to earn extra money. But with Covid and the high cost of living now, it’s even more important for many people.

On a good day, Tania makes around £150. The job and process is also quite simple. At Belvoir Farm, there is a special period of six weeks when flowers are ready to be picked.
