You will need to have the required knowledge already as no training is offered.

You will need to manage Health & Safety and Food Hygeine standards and paperwork.
If you have no experience of growing fruit or veg, please do not apply.
This is a great opportunity for the right person with ambition, but held back by lack of access to land - one of our common issues in farming.
You must have a desire to practice regen ag / organic practices.
