Farm TypeBeef, Sheep, Contractor, Poultry

We are a small family run farm with a varied workload.  We look after 250 dairy heifers along with our own bull beef.  We finish over 1000 hogg’s in winter and have two brand new broiler houses with over 116,000 chickens.  There are plans for a further 2 broiler sheds in the very near future.  We complete contract silage work with a self propelled forager and carry out drainage work with a Mastenbroek trencher, so being able to operate a digger and machinery would be useful.  The farm runs with modern machinery and tractors.  We like to do a lot of our own machinery maintenance in house and like a good winter project in the workshop.

We like to keep our farm clean and tidy.  The successful candidate needs to be motivated, conscientious and flexible.

Approximately 55 hours a week working alternate weekends.

Salary negotiable depending on knowledge and experience.

Our Farm is approximately 1 mile from the local village of Garstang and approx 10 miles from Preston and Lancaster.  Plenty of rental properties in the local area.  Would be happy to help site a caravan on the farm.  Driving license essential.  Any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
