CV Headline

I completed a level 3 extended diploma in agriculture at Moulton College, Northampton in June 16.  During the summer vacations, I worked on a large Velcourt run arable farm with a team of 10 other workers.  Since finishing at college, I have been working on a 1,600 acre family run mixed farm, full time as their sole employee. The farm is mainly arable with approximately 400 ewes. My roles included spraying, fertilizer spreading, various cultivations, machinery maintenance, drilling and sheep handling.
