I have an NVQ in live stock production and farm management, which i gained in 2010 following a period of further education, studding while working full time. This is a gage of how passionate about farming i am. I have worked part time with sheep for the past 14 years and have a small flock i keep myself. I have milked while at college but nothing since, but would be keen to learn and undertake either role or both. I never disappoint. I am just looking for someone to give me the opportunity to take my passion and turn it into reality and to educate where needed. Thank you for your time.

Farming background

I left school and worked for the national newspaper for Wales, leaving there as a print manager in 1998 to start my own security company. I ran that business for 2 years, then took up my ambulance service career after being asked to establish the Patient Transport Service for ST John Wales, then moved onto the NHS Ambulance Service were I am currently an Ambulance Practitioner/Bronze Commander. I have always had an interest in farming, farming had been in the family! While working full time for the NHS I went to Agriculture College and embarked on a journey to get into farming. I did that and obtained the necessary qualifications and have been working part time on a Hill Farm for some 10 years. The time has now come for me to pursue my passion for farming and undertake this full time.

Hobbies

walking, mountaineering out door activities
