Farming background

Four summers working on a large arable farms in south Oxfordshire (2010-2011), West Sussex (2012) and Cornwall (2014). The first year  I was mainly on grain cart and the second year I did all the groundwork (cultivating, discs, ploughing, topping). Third year I was working for a Contracting Company where I was mainly on the grain cart but also did some sub soiling and rolling. 4th harvest I worked for a Contracting Company in Portscatho, Cornwall. My job was to operate the baler and when there was no baling I would jump on the grain cart or assist with the ground work. All the jobs required me to do lots of fencing and general farm and machinery maintenance.

Hobbies

Run, sail, surf, snowboard, cycle
