Farming background

I started as a groundsman/ Gardner then got the opportunity to work on my first farm where I gained my first initial experience on a mixed farm with cows, sheep and a few pigs and chicken.

I then progressed onto a different farm where I gained my arable experience and progressed with my tractor operations. whilst there I took a keen interest in the sheep flock and took a very active role in increasing the flock up to the 1400 ewes.
