A fantastic position has arisen for a herdsperson/General farm worker who is looking to be part of a young team on our progressive farm near Penrith, Cumbria.
We milk 530 cows on a spring block calving system, with good grazing infrastructure, modern buildings and machinery. We focus on maximising milk from forage. Cows are milked through a simple 40:80 parlour with backing gate twice a day and are mainly cubicle housed through winter.
A very competitive salary, great working hours and time off along with involvement in a discussion group and regular training is offered plus help to find accommodation nearby.
Your role would be, but not limited to regular milking, general livestock husbandry, farm maintenance, calf rearing and some record keeping. The ideal candidate would have some on farm experience but a positive attitude and a willingness to learn is more important.
The farm is situated in a particularly scenic location, 5 miles east of Penrith, next to the villages of Edenhall and Langwathby, and is only a 20 min drive to Ullswater, the national park (Lake District) and all the outdoor pursuits it has to offer.
