I am capable & willing to do long hours with lambing/calving & can do day or nights, not fussed. I am pretty easy going. I have a good attitude to work, I work hard & I am reliable. I love working outdoors in all weathers & the countryside. I was furloughed & so have been doing agricultural volunteering as a way to begin a new career in farming. I have also worked with horses, so am comfortable around a yard/livery. My CV is mainly hospitality, so I have written down livestock experience on here for you to read. I am looking for a chance/start in farming, to work for a decent farmer who calls a spade a spade & does not have issues with employing a woman. I am responsible, always safety first & an asset to anyone's outfit. Available from end of Feb/1st March '21. If you require more info on my CV please message me. Thanks for reading, every best Emma
