Future Grower apprenticeship with Plowright Organic
28 March 2013
WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR THIS POSITION
Plowright Organic is based at Stowey Rocks Farm, an 80 acre organic farm in Somerset. We are looking for an apprentice to join our small team and to be involved in all aspects of the work from seed to doorstep.
We grow 20-30 acres of field vegetables and approaching half an acre of protected cropping. We also have a small apple orchard of some 200 trees. We sell through our vegbox scheme, farm shop and farmer’s market and also sell appreciable amounts of wholesale vegetables.
The work involves a good mix of tractor implement work and hand work. It is physically demanding but rewarding and suitable for someone with good practical abilities, basic growing skills and a genuine interest in organic vegetable farming.
A full driving license is essential. Comfortable accommodation is available on the farm.
Terms and conditions are those as detailed by the Soil Association Future Grower Scheme.
