They are a 2,000-acre potato and brassica farm with an additional 10 acres of nursery for module plant propagation. They're specialist vegetable growers, who supply UK wholesale markets and the private food service sector, and are also national food manufacturers of coleslaw, bagged salads and ready meals. They have an enthusiastic team working with modern, state of the art machinery and equipment, and are looking for someone to join the team.

You:
