Farming background

Spent many years working in a local farm in Scotland, also worked on dairy, Arable and pig farms. Studied agriculture at college (3 years) but was unable to get a job in farming due to experience and not being from a farming background. I was offered an apprentice management role in food manufacturing and my career went down that path, in 2008 I then changed career to teaching but have always longed for a return to farming.
