Farming background

A graduate with 30 years practical work experience, 100% reliable with an excellent work ethic. Working in a variety of settings developed my range of skills in grounds maintenance projects in partnership with Glendale, British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and Landlife. Recent experience in 40 point rotary & 11/22 Herringbone parlours provided the opportunity to build dairy parlour skills. Recent spring block calving duties on two pasture based dairy farms has introduced me to a more robust breed of dairy stock in what I believe to be a more natural and environmentally sustainable land management approach to dairy farming.
