Farming background

I was born on the tiny island of Gometra, then went to school on Jura when my farm manager father changed jobs. I've always worked with stock, first managing a farm in Moffat, then moving on to manage another farm after 12 years. Here I have roughly 1,800 blackface ewes and cheviots, some mules. We are looking for different employment as our farm has just been sold.
