Join our Team


The Heron is a new farm shop and café based on our working farm, near the historic market town of Strathaven.  We are passionate about local and regional produce, which will be on sale in the farm shop and show-cased on the café menu.  We aspire to excellent customer service and are committed to developing a team who share our vision and values, enjoy what they do, and support us in taking the farm shop forward.  We are looking for individuals who are friendly and have a positive attitude, who can consistently deliver great service to our customers.  We will provide the training you need to be great at what you do and will support you in developing your skills and knowledge.

We are located approximately 3 miles west of Strathaven, one mile off the A71.  Own transport is required.


We are expanding our kitchen team, to include a Head Chef. This post will involve working usually over a 5 day week. The farm shop is open 7 days 9-5pm, with a 80 cover cafe offering cooked breakfasts, lunches and coffee/cake. No evening work at present but there will be occasional evening work in the future. We are looking for an individual who can inspire the Heron Team with new menu ideas, working with produce from the farm shop to create delicious seasonal dishes. Must have experience of leading a kitchen team.
