Farming background

Come from a farming background and lived on a farm for many years until I moved to Reading. Have done bits and bobs on that farm over the years but nothing major mainly helping out with the animals and hay making. Got my first real taste of farming last year (2016) helping out on a mixed farm for a while so I am trying to find someone that will take me on so I can learn more and gain more experience. done a lot of bale cart and hay making, cultivating and rolling. Spent a lot of time in the workshop. Have experience using JCB loader. Qualified carpenter so have a good eye for detail and done a lot of building work, landscaping, gardening and roofing which comes in surprisingly handy on a farm. Spent last summer (2016)working for someone making and moving thousands of bales near the hungerford area so I am now looking for a full time job on a farm so I can improve further. Spent harvest 2017 working for stern farms where I was employed for the summer as combine driver and to do most of the cultivation work. Done loads of general farm jobs when the combine wasn’t going like fencing and putting In gates, tree limbing, hedge cutting and topping. After drilling was finished my boss decided to keep me on until Christmas to help out with other jobs on the farm.
