Farming background

I come from a farming background through all my school holidays I was at my gran and papas farm. Then I left school and got a job on a local farm as a gfw. I left that and got a job with an aggriculture contractor to gain experience with all machinery which I done for about 3years. Then I went back to farming as the main tractor man on a farm of 2000acr when doing that I became more involved with the sheep.then became the shepherd on the estate. I left that job and got my PCV licence which I done for about 3years then went back to farming as a shepherd. Due to the farmer selling up and retirement I went and got my hgv I've since came back to farming.
