Job description

Heckfield Estates is looking for an enthusiastic individual to join its Dairy team. You will be assisting the Dairy in the production of a range of dairy products, which may include whole and semi-skimmed milk, cream, butter and yoghurt and others in line with business demands.

Although previous experience in a similar position will be a plus, more importantly we are looking for someone with genuine enthusiasm for artisanal dairy produce, who is willing to learn and uphold our organic and biodynamic approach, and who will maintain exceptional hygiene and housekeeping standards.

Heckfield Park Farm is the 340-acre original Home Farm, which is mixed arable and livestock, certified organic and farmed biodynamically. Suffolk sheep and saddleback pigs graze the land and flocks of chickens supply eggs for our businesses. Our herd of Guernsey cows arrived in late 2019 along with a purpose built dairy to produce our own milk, and there is also a five acre biodynamic Market Garden that supplies the hotels restaurants and our London businesses  with beautiful and truly seasonal produce.

Some of the areas you will be supporting include:

  • production of range of Dairy products
  • development of new lines of produce within the brand
  • completion of records for daily processes
  • maintenance of the CIP (cleaning in process) and documentation
  • reducing, monitoring and maintaining wastage
  • delivering exceptional guest experience in and around the Dairy operations

We are trying to create something very special in these lovely grounds and we would be pleased to hear from you. This is a wonderful opportunity for someone to be involved in a progressive and creative farm to table project.

Only candidates with the Right to Work in the UK should apply.
