Plowright Organic is a family business, growing organic vegetables at Stowey Rocks Farm. We sell our produce through our organic veg box scheme and we have a number of local wholesale outlets.
We are currently looking for a Field Worker to join our small, friendly team. Your role will mainly involve harvesting and grading a wide range of veg, pre-packing, planting and weeding, depending on the season. A willingness to cover for other team members when required, and to muck-in with other aspects of the work on the farm is essential. This is an interesting and varied job, requiring attention to detail to get the right quality of produce to our customers.
You will be a keen outdoors person, who enjoys physically active work and likes to work close to nature in all weather.
Essential qualities to excel in this role are:
Practical - to get to grips with efficient harvesting and trimming methods.
Productive - to achieve a reasonable level of speed in your work.
Adaptable - to cope with new and changing quality issues in crops as the seasons progress.
Enthusiastic and cheerful team member - to get the job done in all weather conditions.
Some previous experience of harvest work / knowledge of vegetable production would be an advantage but not essential, as all training will be provided on the job.
