Farming background

My farming background is mainly in the grassland and dairy sectors. I have worked with some of the biggest farms in Wales and managed to gain a vast knowledge of how large mechanised farms work. I gained most of my knowledge, passion and strong work ethic from my parents who ran and owned a small dairy farm in mid Wales. I also have experience outside of farming and have worked driving a tractor on various large earth works sites and also served in the British Army.


Outside of work i like to socialise with friends and family. I also do charity work for the farmers community network. Also I am a keen sports fan.
