Farming background

When i was in my final year of school i started lambing at weekends then on holidays and school breaks i just caught the lambing bug. Then when i left school every spring i've done a lambing season. I've lambed on hill farms in wales and a remote farm in Norway to my neighbours farm back here in the midlands. I'm currently solo traveling New Zealand been out here since October, traveling round big sheep beef and deer stations. I arrive back home on march 1st and i'm lambing on my neighbours farm for three weeks them i'm free after then. last year i lambed from march till the first week of june and people think im crazy but i just like the work and love meeting new people theres not many people i don't get along with
