About Jobfarm

Jobfarm was the Royal Highland Agricultural Society of Scotland’s presidential team 2018 initiative . Its aim was to make young people aware of the wide range of careers and jobs in agriculture, food industries, science and rural businesses, coordinating work experience with a range of agricultural and rural employers within the Lothian's.

The interest during the presidential year was so positive that the RHASS team have funded a position to build on the existing work developed by the presidential team with the aim of rolling out Jobfarm to the whole of Scotland.

A really rewarding industry

“It’s important to keep rural jobs going. There are not that many (farrier) apprentices being trained in Scotland, so it would be good to encourage more people to do the job.”

No such thing as an average day

“There’s no such thing as an average day. It can be anything from ploughing to driving in the grain or repairing dykes and fencing. That’s what keeps it interesting.”
Stuart Lowe , Agricultural Contractor
