My name is Paul originally from a 200 ac arable and vegetable farm in Southern Ireland where I worked from 11 years of age up until 1997 when we gave up the vegetables and contracted out all cereal work stubble to stubble to a local contractor until the farms sale in 2003.I then worked for the contractor who undertook our work from 1997 to 2002 where I undertook all cereal and silage work on about 2000 ac of cereals and 2800 ac of grass silage and 800ac of maize.Undertook all work including carting, ploughing, cultivation, fert spreading, combining and periodic forager driving. I was made redundant in 2002 due to the company dissolving. In summer 2002 I moved to Suffolk to work on a 6000-ac veg, root and cereal farm undertaking all general carting and potato work de-stoning etc. I stayed until summer 2005 where I went to Oxfordshire for the summer and autumn to undertake all combining and drilling on this 800 ac farm. I then got offered a farm managers position on 500 ac of cereals where I undertook all arable work on my own with casual help in summer.I worked there from 2005 to 2011. I then moved to Essex to work on 2000 ac as head arable operator undertaking all arable work on a Cat challenger 845C.Cultivations, drilling, fert and spraying.I worked there from 2011 to 2013. Then worked as a sprayman for one of the UKs largest vegetable producers. 2016 to December 2019 on 1500ac in North Norfolk growing malting barley winter/spring, feed wheat, HOLL oilseed rape and sugar beet. Work most of the year on my own with the exception of harvest time. Currently working in West Norfolk on 3500 acre farm growing combineables sugar beet maize and rye for AD currently lead operator undertaking all operations in a team of six. A bit rough and ready for my liking. Things not done well so will move on if the right job comes up preferably Norfolk but elsewhere could be a possibility? Will move with a months notice if the right job comes up?
