June 2019 to September 2019 Farmhand at ____ Court Farm
During the summer I worked on this farm helping them out in preparation for harvest and worked during the season. I helped with all the preparations ready for harvesting by servicing machinery and clearing paths ready for the combine. During this period, I put in many hours on a grain cart with 14 tonne trailers carting the grain back to the farm and tipping into a grain store.
I also gained experience in a combine learning some of the basics of the machine. Towards the end of the season I began cultivations using multiple different types of machines, most commonly using a John Deere 6215R 2018 as well as a 6175r 2019 model john Deeres, with their Own Gps systems, I used these systems throughout this period setting them up and using them for many different jobs.
August 2018 to January 2019 Farmhand at _____ __ & Sons
During the summer I was working on an organic farm which farms both Arable and Livestock. From the start I was left to work independently on all traditional cultivations on this full organic farm. This type of cultivation must be used to reduce potential weed growth. I have also spent some time working alongside another farm hand on the engineering side looking at the maintenance of all aspects of the Farm machinery as well gaining further experience loading the drill and ensuring the yard is kept tidy at all times.
Whilst keeping the yard and the drier clean it is important that we still maintain our organic approach to the works and ensure that we keep good standards to minimise the risk of rodents.
July 2018 to August 2018 Farmhand at ________ Farm
During the Summer I helped out on the local farm and was involved in many aspects of Farming.
This included working with Livestock, Fencing and Harvesting.
This offered me a variety of tasks and gave me an excellent insight into Farming. Once the Harvest was over the workload slowed and with agreement of the owner I also worked with the other farmer in the village.
