Farming background

I have been passionate about farming from a young age and now I am in a position to realise my life long career ambition. Having previously worked on a sheep and hay farm producing 12,000 traditional bales a year, 2016 saw me working on a 4000 acre arable farm as part of a large team, working an average of 80-100 hours per week.

Apart from harvesting, cultivation, drilling, equipment maintenance and general farm duties, I was also tasked with many lone working operations. 2017 has seen me once again in a position of responsibility, in particular taking charge of drilling 350 acres of OSR and being responsible for ploughing in excess of 500 acres. As well as the usual harvest tasks I am still keen to secure a permanent employment position. 2018 has seen me on a 2500 acre arable contracting business, gaining further experience and responsibility including client liaison.

I have extensive experience of all Microsoft Office software and some experience of Gatekeeper, March 2019 has seen me posted on a 6000 acre arable farm, undertaking all aspects of a large arable farm so furthering my knowledge and experience. I am due to return to this farm Spring 2020, but would rather secure a permanent post, or a harvest post with the potential of becoming permanent.
