Farming background

I first got involved in farming when i was 14 years old, since then I worked on a large arable and vegetable farm for about 4 years, After which I traveled the world ended up working for a contractor for 7 months in new Zealand. Then I returned and worked for contractors here in the UK, mostly baling and foraging but all aspects of arable farming involved from cultivation and drilling to harvest. I have also harvested cotton in Australia and was there for a little under a year, undertaking all types of work and from 360 operation to Tyre fitting in the yard. I studied Agriculture with mechanization at college for 3 years and I am a proficient welder and carry out all hot works with great results.


Hobbies include mountain biking, going to the gym when I get time! Restoring a friends jaguar xjs at the moment and reading profi magazine keeping upto date with all things machine.
