Deadline: 24 May 2022

Compensation: Depending on experience

Paid Full-time Part-time Permanent


Job description

We are seeking an experienced head grower to help develop our new market garden and manage productivity of our 4 acre no dig, no pesticide site.

There maybe a role for a less experienced market gardener but you will still have commercial market growing experience and bags of passion for the craft.

Set in East Sussex, the farm is a new project set up by Flint Owl Bakery to provide organic, no dig vegetables, herbs, fruits and flowers to supply our production kitchen and cafes. 

The market garden is in its infancy and we are looking for someone to help plan and further develop the site. There is still work to be done on the building of tunnels, packing stations, fencing, building no dig beds etc. An all round practical skillset will be important.

We are looking to recruit a hard-working and highly experienced commercial grower who can practically manage all the crop planning and vegetable production for the year. You will bring your experience of no pesticide commercial market gardening, ideally some no dig, with production ideas to drive this exciting business forward.

You will have extensive organic horticultural growing and market garden crop planning experience. An ability to inspire, train and manage current & future team members while engaging positively with the general public.
