I have grown up on a very small family farm where we have always had a small flock of sheep. I did work experience on a dairy farm whilst doing A-level, as well as other odd farm or animal related jobs wherever I could.
I now live on a dairy farm with my boyfriend so am quite involved helping there when I'm free, milking and feeding calves. As well as still having my flock of lleyns and few pigs which I do for selling privately.
