I was made redundant in 2002 due to the company dissolving. In summer 2002 I moved to Suffolk to work on a 6000-ac veg, root and cereal farm undertaking all general carting and potato work de-stoning etc. I stayed until summer 2005 where I went to Oxfordshire for the summer and autumn to undertake all combining and drilling on this 800 ac farm.
