Farm Manager

Farm Manager

A rare opportunity has arisen to join a well-diversified farming business in a critical role.

T Mellor & Son is a fourth-generation family farming business, which has spawned two of the leading drinks companies in the North of England, Wold Top Brewery and Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery.

The current owner wishes to retire, and as the next generation is fully employed running the drinks companies, the family is seeking an energetic and forward-thinking manager to work alongside them to further develop and fulfil the farming business, which is pivotal to the overall operation.

The farm produces all the barley needed for the allied businesses and is critical to maintaining the provenance and integrity of our “grain-to-glass” and “field-to-bottle” philosophy.

The last five years have seen the farm transition to regenerative farming principles with a high emphasis on reducing emissions and sequestering carbon and nitrogen back into the soil. The successful candidate will, amongst other things, further develop this by introducing grazing livestock (possibly as a JV) back onto the farm, therefore a holistic approach to this role is required.

The candidate should ideally, but not necessarily, have an agricultural qualification. They will demonstrate the critical thinking needed to drive the farming side forward as new markets and opportunities appear. Attitude, strength of character and the ability to communicate both in and out of the business are essential.

All aspects of running a farming business are expected.

Salary is dependent on experience and accommodation can be provided.
