Farming background

I graduated in 2013 with a Degree in Costume Design and Making, but it was apparent very early on that I wanted a career change; I loved the time I had worked on a farm, so I decided to do a Level 3 Work Based Diploma in Agriculture: Livestock farming in which I worked at a rare breeds farm gaining skills and experience with many different farm species. I prefer working with sheep, goats and pigs. I would really appreciate it if someone gave me some arable experience too. I am a practical and mature individual and have a real interest in working with livestock. I am a hard-worker and am very determined to learn new skills in this field to build a career in this industry.


I enjoy exercise and compete in a number of sprint triathlons and running events. I regularly take part in workshops learning new art and craft skills and techniques.
