About the Role

Reporting to the Farm Manager, you will support the overall running of the farm, ensuring the highest quality berries are being grown. You will be responsible for running large teams, making sure that the people around you are motivated and working efficiently. You will be crop walking, assessing for pests and diseases, monitoring irrigation and any other crop husbandry tasks.
