Fruit Picking in Switzerland or France

Does anyone have any information about fruit picking in Lausanne, Switzerland or Lyon, France?

We are 8 backpackers and are going there through Italy with very little information and a budget to cover only traveling expenses.

Does anyone know if we can contact someone for a job or do we go and ask in person? Whilst there can we camp somewhere, will there be places to stay for free? What are the wages/ working hours like? Are the workers provided with food?

Any information would be great!

Practically impossible in Switzerland. You would need a work permit for short time work and the employer has to do a lot of paperwork for this.

A nice dream - but that is probably all it is unfortunately.
