We are growing, fancy joining our team?

Hartley Farm is a family owned farm shop and kitchen with a mission to produce and serve the very best food and drink. We are passionate about the provenance of our ingredients – what we can’t grow, rear or make ourselves is sourced from as close to home as possible.

Wanting to share the love of great food in another community further afield than our farm in Winsley, we opened Neston Farm Shop and Kitchen on the Neston Park Estate. Different location, same values.

We know that growing our business doesn’t mean changing our ethos and the people who work with us are a big part of that. We are looking for team members who share our values and want to help us grow our story and spread the word to our customers.

Training and Development

We want the best people to work for us and understand that to achieve a fabulous team we need to provide you with ongoing support and training. We believe that working in retail and hospitality is a great career choice and we can support your progression in these areas.


Induction and Training

To start off with we will go through an induction programme with you so that you know what we are all about, including a tour of the farm where it all started. Once you have got to grips with all the required information, such as health and safety, your manager or supervisor will get you going with our on-the-job training programme specifically for your role. Your progress will be tracked and we will keep talking to you and setting you new and exciting challenges.



We work with Babcock International to provide some of our employees with apprenticeships so you can earn whilst you are training. Once enrolled we will provide you with a mentor and your assessor from the college will visit and check your progress on a 6-8 weekly basis.

We can offer the following courses:

NVQ 2 Food and Beverage Service

NVQ 2 Food Production

NVQ 2 Professional Cookery

NVQ 2 Retail Skills

NVQ 3 Hospitality Supervision and Leadership
