Job Opportunity – Dairy Processing Worker, East Sussex

Mar 22, 2022

The wonderful Plaw Hatch Farm in East Sussex are hiring. This biodynamic farm and long standing WWOOF host situated just outside of Forest Row is looking for a new team member to work in their dairy which produces raw milk amongst other products.

Come and work in our Dairy!

We’re looking for people who are passionate about all things milk and cheese to join our dairy team.

This is a unique opportunity to get involved in the farm and learn new skills in the ethical food industry.

Previous experience working with dairy or food production is desirable though not required.

Farming is a way of life; challenging, emotional, rewarding. No two days are the same. Our people are at the centre of what we do at Plaw Hatch Farm, and we make sure they are well looked after.

Biodynamic farming requires many hands, and Plaw Hatch is proud to offer employment and homes to many young farmers and their families. We hope we can pave the way for young people to consider biodynamic farming as a career option, and we strive to provide an environment where people want to live as well as work; not just a farm, but a community.

Employees get 20% off in the Farm Shop, and we pay the UK Real Living Wage.

We’re looking for enthusiasm, energy, and a willingness to learn and innovate, so if you think this is you, drop a CV and cover letter to:

Here’s a link to a recent newsletter with updates on what’s going on at the farm – click here.
