Personal information


Other Information

My name is John, Im 21 years old, I come from a farming background and have a great interest in farming. Ive worked on different farms around Scotland and have done since I left school. At 17 I went to Fearn farm where we were lambing around 4000 sheep day and night, I really gained a lot of experience from John Scott. At 19 I then moved closer to home and worked on a estate on the Isle of Mull, very different but definitely gained a lot of knowledge. After a while I went back home to work with my dad on the Isle of Iona to start my own flock and help on the family farm. I am currently living in oban and working in a garage after finding out me and my girlfriend were having a baby, as there were no houses on Iona. I am really keen to get back into farming and keen to start asap. I think working at your estate would help me gain more knowledge for the future and I think Id be a real asset to the team. I am young but keen to learn new skills, hardworking and never scared to try new things.
