Farm Manager - Rare Breeds

Lyons Hill Farm

Dorchester

This is a rare and exciting opportunity for an above average Farm Manager who is truly dedicated to rare breeds, and has a genuine interest in producing top quality meat, whilst being a part of a growing commercial enterprise. Our meat is supplied to the London restaurant trade and direct to the home consumer. This is a job for a special kind of farmer, who understands and enjoys implementing extensive, regenerative farming methods, is a knowledgeable countryman with a genuine respect for biodiversity and has a sound understanding of sensitive grassland and woodland management. Rare breeds include White Park cattle, Portland sheep, Iron Age pigs in woodland and free range, rare breed Indian Game chickens.

Ideally you will have a passion for livestock, a knowledge of meat, poultry and game and a commercial mind, motivated by being a part of an exciting commercial enterprise, incentivised by a share of the profits. A great opportunity for a true country person, to enjoy the lifestyle of living and working on an old fashioned, secluded farm in Dorset. The natural beauty of this secluded farm, and its maintenance to a very high standard, is a key factor. A tidy farm is of paramount importance.

The small family shoot is also an important element, so you would work closely with our gamekeeper in deer management and in optimising the success of our shoot.

The very attractive Farm Manager’s house has recently been built. There are three double bedrooms.

The overall package for the successful candidate is worth £50,000 +
