Farming background

I am a experienced arable operator with 16 years of experience. When I was growing up the only job I wanted to do was work in the agricultural industry, which so far I have had the pleasure of doing. I have experience in root crop and arable operations from manual work pushing a brush to operating big machinery as well. I have proven to be a good timekeeper, hardworking and can work as well in a team as I can on my own.
