About Us

Hartpury University’s estate boasts its own 1,000 acre commercial Home Farm split across several sites. The dairy is part of a mixed farming enterprise, and the herd is comprised of 250 Autumn calving Holstein-Friesians. Cows are milked twice a day through a 32:32 rapid-exit De Laval parlour.

You will also be expected to be a flexible team player, with a willingness to assist on the other enterprises as needed.
