Low Carr Farm is a 100 acre grassland farm where most of lambing takes place for our Hebridean sheep.
Part of the role will assist the Grazing Team to ensure the successful conservation grazing of over 30 Nature Reserves with cattle and sheep throughout the year. As a Farm and Grazing Voluntary Trainee you will assist in all aspects of farm conservation and management at both sites and play a key role in the conservation grazing plan. This is a very hands on role and if you have a loveof the outdoors, being around livestock and getting stuck into all manner of land management tasks then this is definately the role for you.

Accommodation at the farm is provided (utility bills included) with this role at Appleton Mill Farm. There could be occasions where you may have to provide an onsite presence, eg Farm Manager away, and a potential for unsociable hours in line with livestock/farm tasks.
