I have been involved in farming for over 30 years now from being a small boy, I started at weekends going to work with my father, they farmed in dairy, beef, and sheep. My love for farming started from there. When I was 16 I was offered a job on a
An arable farm that dealt with mixed combinable crops and potatoes that they supplied to Walkers and Smiths crisps. I learned a lot from the experience of working for them and had the pleasure of being with them until I was 25 years old.
In 2005/06 I went over to Australia and worked a season over there. I was involved with the combinable crops including the sugar cane and rice, this was a wonderful experience and an opportunity I will never forget.
Within my time as a farming contractor up-to-the present time, I have been involved and gained my knowledge and experience with many things from:
•All cultivational work including
•Harvesting of combinable crops & of root crops
•Muck & fertilizer spreading
•Baling, mowing & foraging
•High-level Maintenance of machinery & servicing
•dairy & suckler cattle
•Breeding sheep & lambing
I also have experience within the construction sector, this includes all plant equipment and groundworks. I also have a current PA1/2 for spraying, a telehandler ticket, and have relevant health and safety tickets. I always endeavor to get every job done professionally and efficiently and have no issue with any workload or hours.
