I am currently looking for a shepherd to join a quickly growing team on an innovative, sustainable and organic estate in the South East of England.

For the first few months you will have the opportunity of a handover from the current shepherd, giving you a head start on getting to know the estate well and the goals they wish to achieve.

An average day will see you primarily managing the sheep across the vineyard farm estate. This will include, fencing (around 70% electric currently-looking to become fully permanent fencing throughout the estate), maintenance of the conservation/semi-natural and commercial assets (vines) using the livestock, general animal husbandry and growing the flocks.

 

Requirements:

  • Ideally 3 or more years' experience as a shepherd (outdoor more preferable)
  • One or more working dogs
  • Interest in Pedigree and rare breeds
  • Knowledge of regenerative/organic farming systems.
  • Understanding of digital recording systems
  • Have an open and progressive mindset

Package: Competitive salary, Generous staff discount, Annual performance based bonus, Accommodation and kennels, 25 days holiday plus bank holidays!!
