Farming background

I have worked as a joiner and door fabricator for a year after leaving school, I have also worked at an Eventing Centre Building XC fences to a British Eventing standard and maintaining the grounds, machinery and facilities for 4 years. After that I went to agricultural college to do my NDA, whilst doing my NDA I worked for a 2000 acre estate driving a Claas Lexion 750 combine for two harvests from then on farming has been my main interest, running my own business in France which was 132 ha sheep and cereal unit with 300 sheep Charolais x texel and 92 ha of cereals with modern John Deere and Case tractors and also working alongside a families bigger arable unit of 300 ha for 10 years. The two farms were adjacent to one another. I also did contract hay making and selling hay and straw. I then returned to the same 2000 ha estate that I drove the combine on previously to cart and cultivate using a Fendt 724 and Cat Challenger 75E whilst searching for a permanent job. Now I am carting sugar beet in Cambridgeshire but am free to relocate to a permanent position.
