I was brought up on a hill farm in Cheshire with 500 gritstone ewes and 100 Charolais cows. At 16 I went to work for a local farmer who I stayed with until he sadly passed away 8 years ago. We had 800 mule/Texel ewes and 50 suckler cows. The cows were on the farm and on local land to it, the sheep were on a hugely fragmented system spreading across 4 counties. I've gained a lot of experience with all aspects of grass land machinery. I can also weld and have some experience in the building trade. Ive spent 4 years on a hill farm in Northumberland with 3500 hefted blackface ewes and 600 cheviots on a lowland farm. Im currently managing an estate farm in SW Scotland running 900 blackface on the hill, 700 cross ewes and 200 cows.
I have a partner, Faye, and we have a 7 year old son together, James. Faye is also a keen shepherdess managing her own flock of blackface on the estate. She also has a full clean uk driving license and trailer test, shes a confidant tractor driver and has worked with most grassland machinery. Between us we have a brilliant team of dogs and take great pleasure in both working and trialing them.
