Farming background

My growing up years were all involved in farming and countryside management. I worked a lot around my family, being involved in Arable, Christmas Trees, Gamekeeping and Livestock. I then eventually fell along the path of shepherding, leading to extensive work with sheep but also tractor and machinery work relative to the day to day running of a farm. Through Harvest work I have gained a lot of experience with large Arable equipment doing various tasks.


I Don't have a lot of time outside of working now, but I have several keen interests: I like to fabricate everything I can and work on machinery as well as my own trucks. I also enjoy shooting and generally being outside.
