I set up a small holding in December 2017, whilst in my second year at Oxford Brookes University. I have a small flock of Dorset Down sheep, and I have Aylesbury and Welsh Harlequin Ducks. I sell produce direct to the consumer and I carry out all the operations myself.
I was a sport and music scholar at senior school. I played county cricket for Hampshire from U13-U16 Dorset county cricket for U17, currently Dorset Leopards. Played for Oxford MCCU which is first class cricket standard whilst at Oxford Brookes.

June - Sep 2018, July - Aug 2019, July - Aug 2020:
Farm approximately 2000acres of arable land. Cropping includes OSR, Wheat, Barley, Beans, Grass seed, and a small area of commercial vetch. They also have their own seed processing plant. Their operation was very precise with samples having to reach extremely high purity standards.
Aug - Present:
Sub-contracting for a local contractor.
Nick runs a local contracting and fencing business. I drove a tractor and dumper trailer on a muck away job before moving onto a large fencing contract for Tidworth Polo club in which we cleared and erected over 2km of horse net fencing. I am still working with Nick on occasions and we cover a wide area with great responses from customers.
Dec 2017 - Present:
Sole Trader of a Farm/Agricultural Services Company.
Started a rare breed smallholding at my parents house in December 2017 and then offered contract topping and aeration services locally after the purchase and restoration of machinery. The purpose of this venture was to provide me with 1st hand experience of starting, managing, and running a business. I sell premium boxed lamb and free-range duck eggs direct to private customers with excellent feedback and customer satisfaction.
