Farming background

I Grew up on a dairy unit with my father being herdsman, until the age of 71

I started farming at a young age working my way up from general farm worker to now herd manager. I left for a couple of years and had the opportunity to run a farm for a while which I enjoyed. turning it from an all year round calving herd to an autumn block herd. At the request of the farmer. Then I returned to my current job having gained more experience.

Apart from the two year gap Ive worked on the same farm for over 25 years.

Im looking for a solid family run farm that myself and family are able to settle in as we have no desire to move around.
