Stockperson/General Farm Worker

Stockperson/General Farm Worker

Strathtyrum and Fossoway Farms care for 1,200ha in Fife and Kinross-shire with arable, beef, pigs and sheep. The majority of our livestock are marketed directly through our farm shop, Balgove Larder.

We wish to recruit an enthusiastic and reliable stockperson/general farm worker, primarily to look after the 150 cow suckler herd. We are seeking to maximise the grazing abilities of livestock, with minimal housing and maximum use of forage.
The successful applicant will help develop our regenerative, organic farming system. They will be experienced with livestock, particularly cattle and outdoor calving and be able to operate farm machinery with mechanical sympathy.

We require a team player with a strong work ethic and a positive attitude who is inclined to be tidy, resourceful and open minded. An understanding of organic principles or a preparedness to learn is desirable, as is a willingness to research and try methods that enhance our sustainability.

We offer a competitive salary matched to experience, accommodation if required and the opportunity to be part of an innovative farm operation.

Please send CV and covering letter to the Farm Manager.
