I lived in New Zealand for 5 years and have lived in the UK for 3.5 years and want to pursue my farming career. I am a qualified plasterer but since being in New Zealand I have grown to really enjoy learning all I can about farming and its what I would like to do in the near future as a full time job. I have also worked with a trenching company while in Christchurch for 2 years laying power cables.
