Farming background

I'm from a farming background, beef, sucklers and barley, moved into organic farming roughly 5 years ago I am working full time on a potato and sheep farm for the last 2 years, where I'd have to grade potatoes, bag them, change boxes with fork lift to tip into the hopper, dose ewes and lambs, check them out in the fields in case they're on their back or have maggots. Also during lambing season I'd have to help pull some lambs, feed ewes, get lambs to suckle and use replacement for some lambs, I've also to do other duties throughout the year like spray weeds with knapsack, tidy yard, pull earlier in potato field, level boxes during harvesting etc.

Hobbies
