Farming background

I grew up on a farm in Ireland and have been involved with farming my whole life. I have also worked on 6 different farms since moving over to Scotland. Was reared on family farm and when my dad was away in the spring I was left in charge of the day to day running of 1600 ewe and gimmer flock with a mixture of pedigree sheep and crossbreed sheep also looking after the 300 suckler cows and calf them if they needed assistance.


I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, fixing and driving cars, riding my motorbike and basically just having fun.
