I have a passion for agriculture. I am a trained Tree Surgeon that gained experience working on a farm alongside working as a Tree Surgeon. I have since then gained more experience by working full time on a beef farm in Northampton.

My tractor experience has been mainly with grass management and hauling trailers. I have spent the last three harvests mowing, spinning and rowing grass for hay and silage. I have done a small amount of ploughing but would like to do more and gain experience with that. I can drive tracked machines such as diggers and tracked post knockers, I spent a year working as a fencing contractor, doing various agricultural fencing i have also spent time driving diggers up to 12tone, ditching and ground work for horse areas putting in drains.
Whilst I was at college I helped on a sheep dairy farm, there I milked and lambed whist helping with the day to day running of the farm such as feeding with a feeder waggon. Then I worked with a small herd of 60 Dexter cattle, working with them I have assisted with TB testing, feeding and bedding up. Most recently I have been a beef herdsman looking after a heard of 200, here I have been feeding, bedding down, mucking out and calving.
I would like to be able to have my Cocker Spaniel with me.
Outside of work I like to play cricket and also work/ train my dog so she can become a working gun dog.
For the last 4 years I have been working as a Tree Surgeon and Fencing Contractor. The company I have been working for has a 250 acre beef and arable farm where I have been helping with tasks. I have been mainly assisting within harvest season with the mowing, spinning and rowing up of hay and silage as well as hauling bales. Recently I took on a role working on a beef farm where I have gained more experience with larger beef cattle. I have also spent a lot of time tractor driving mainly for grass land but have done a small amount of arable.
