What’s your job title?
Assistant Farm Manager
How long have you worked for River Cottage?
What do you like about working for here?
The most enjoyable part of my job is the variation of my work. And the most satisfying is seeing produce from the farm being turned into amazing meals by the chefs and enjoyed by our guests.
What’s your typical day like?
My typical day (if there is such a thing as it's so varied) always starts with feeding and checking all our livestock on the farm. Then a quick Land team meeting to plan the days jobs on the Farm and Garden. Often followed by taking the tractor and trailer to collect guests who our spending the day at one of our events or courses at River Cottage HQ. The rest of the morning I will be working on the farm where the jobs vary due to the time of year. It could be tractor work, managing livestock, giving a farm tour to guests, delivering produce to the chefs or maintenance and planning. Lunchtimes are often spent at the Gardeners shed (or ideally outside the shed when the suns shining) The afternoon is often similar to the morning but will involve another check of the livestock, feeding and collecting eggs along with undertaking and planning any other land management tasks.
