The role will involve solid and liquid digestate haulage, silage carting, grainstore preparation, corn carting, machinery maintenance, assisting with sheeting of silage clamps, cultivations (depending on experience) and general farm duties.  Experience in all aspects of the role is not required, as we are happy to provide training for the right candidate.
