Farming background

I am from a farming background and, although I have been working recently as an engineer, I have been able to carry out part time and seasonal farming work alongside this for nearly all my life firstly at the family farm in Cambridge and then, more recently, for at a large mixed farm. My main duties are helping with the wheat and potato harvests and autumn cultivations but I also get involved with other general duties as required which in the last year involved the construction of a new dairy and associated buildings. I have worked as an engineer on construction sites and have a good knowledge of machinery and excellent problem solving skills. I have also renovated a couple of houses and built a large, double, traditional construction garage.

Hobbies

I am a keen DIY'er and always have a building project on the go. I like to get out walking and cycling. My family and I are involved in our local community and church.
