Head Tractor Driver

Formed in 2005 as a joint venture partnership between Robert Cooper’s East Farm and Rob Pickford’s Upper Farm, we grow 2500 acres of arable crops, and then provide manure, forage services, and TMR feeding to neighbouring farms and Upper Farm’s dairy.

This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of our team driving farm efficiency forward. We run a fleet of Fendt tractors, a tracked combine harvester & 30m self-propelled sprayer, all GPS auto-steer controlled.

We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, skilled tractor driver with experience in arable operations to a high standard. Ability at machine & estate maintenance, workshop skills, combine driving and sprayer operation all an advantage, but training will be provided. The right attitude and ability to learn are important.

The role will include strip-till & low disturbance drilling, foraging with a Pottinger wagon, round baling, general tractor work, general manual farm work, and some cattle work. There will be opportunities to work long hours doing arable/contract work when the weather window opens, and during the winter months you can, if you wish, provide relief, and work alternate weekends, assisting at Upper Farm’s dairy.

This a permanent position starting this spring, or at any time prior to harvest, for the right candidate. We’re offering a flexible 40 hour week with unlimited overtime along with a self-catering flat available for single person, with internet connection (may be shared with harvest student during the summer).
