Farming background

I've been around and on farms all my life, drove my 1st tractor at age 8 and bought my 1st tractor, a Fordson super major at age 14. I worked evenings and weekends on local farms, doing anything from feeding the animals to wrapping and stacking round bales. When I left school, I did a 1 year apprenticeship in a small farm machinery repair workshop, where I learnt a lot about fixing and repairing machinery.  When I finished there, I worked for an agricultural contractor working with dump trailers and silaging.  I saved enough money to buy my own tractor and bale wrapper and in 2002 I set out on my own, expanding my business to include all trailer work, baling and wrapping, mowing, hedge cutting and dung spreading, while in the winter months, working on a local farm doing all the stock tasks, including calving cows, rearing young stock and beef. In 2010 I sold the business and worked as a sub contractor in the local council yard till the end of 2011 when budget cuts meant I was out of a job. The start of 2012 I started a position for a large vegetable grower in Warwickshire, where they put me through all my spray tickets, flt, telehandler, quad bike and chainsaw tickets, I worked there till April 2014 as main sprayer operator/tractor driver when I moved up to Stoke on Trent to be with my partner and family and started with my current employer, working on a 240 cow dairy unit, involved with all ages of stock and general tractor work

Hobbies

I draw my own art and also collect and fix chainsaws, along with spending time with my family
