Overview

The Agriculture sector is huge and makes up 6% of all UK business, which equates to around 660,000 employees nationwide. Craven College serves a large rural community so we understand the needs of local employers and their workforce. Opportunities in Agriculture range from work on the traditional smaller farm or specialist farm with rare breeds to the large commercial farm with a variety of animals and crops. Working with livestock, you could be managing a dairy herd, cattle for beef, sheep for both wool and lamb, pigs, poultry, goats or even alpacas! The work is very interesting, varied and rewarding but you must be prepared for long days, early starts and working in all weather conditions.
