Farming background

I have been born and raised in rural Somerset, and have been interested and enjoyed farming from an early age. After I left school I spent a year working on different farms in Australia and New Zealand, and spent a month lambing on a local farm to my families home in April 2017, where I also learned how to plough and roll the following autumn. I finished my studies at the University of Leeds with an MSc in Sustainable agriculture, in December 2016.

Hobbies

In my spare time I enjoy rowing and spending time with friends. I like to travel when I can.
