Other Information

As you can see by my current cv I did move out of the agriculture industry some years ago due to the family farm being handed down after a family bereavement. Farming is in my blood and it is my passion and I feel it is time to do what is right for me and my family and get back in to agriculture. My whole career has been made by hard work, commitment and dedication, all I need is a chance again. I still pride myself in being able to work with livestock, I am mechanically minded and practice, and I can still operate any piece of machinery that I am asked too, I have my PA1 and PA2 , but I am willing to take any tests that I am required to do. To prove how serious I am, if you are willing to give me chance I am prepared to take holiday come and work for you over a weekend or week and prove how much of asset I would be to you.
