We are looking to recruit a cowperson and farming all rounder for a varied role on our family run organic dairy farm.
The primary job would be to look after, milk and care for our herd of 80 organic cows on our traditional, yet forward thinking farm near Gloucester alongside ourselves. Alongside our farming we also process our organic milk onsite into a growing range of award winning dairy produce, distributed nationally. There is the opportunity to be actively involved in this side of the business if desired.
High levels of animal welfare, attention to detail, enthusiasm and willingness to learn are essential, as is the ability to work both independently and as part of a team on all day to day farm tasks. This is a varied role of grassland management, field work ,traditional farming activities, wildlife conservation and general animal husbandry on our very beautiful 225 acre farm. All followers are reared, with a mixture of bull and Ai used. Our herd is predominantly British friesian, with crossbreeding to Brown Swiss, MRI, and Swedish red. We aim for long life cows averaging 6,600litres through a herringbone parlour.
We take huge pride in what we do, our beautiful farm, our 'Ladies' and dairy produce. We are looking for a reliable, easy going and knowledgeable assistant for a varied and rewarding role.
