Farming background

I was brought up on a hill farm with 500 gritstone ewes and 100 Charolais cows. At 16 went to work for a local farmer who I stayed with until he sadly died 5 years ago. We had 800 mule/Texel ewes and 50 suckler cows. The cows were on the farm and on local land to it, the sheep were on a hugely fragmented system. I've gained a lot of experience with all aspects of grass land machinery. I can also weld and have some experience in the building trade. I'm currently on a hill farm with over 2500 hefted blackface ewes and we also have an inbye farm with 500 cheviots. I have a 29 year old partner (faye) and we have a 5 year old son together. Faye's very experienced with animals and can also drive a tractors, has experience in the lambing shed and good in the pens.


Shoot, train dogs, spend time with my family.
