Farming background

I worked for a joinery company straight from school. I then worked at a local farm for 7 years contracting 4500 acres, where I also did my apprenticeship. I left in December 2018 to relocate to a smaller farm of 438 acres which initially did not have any livestock, though with my help there are now 2 sows, 1 boar, 77 sheep and 400 chickens. In the absence of the farm manager, I was second in charge and used my knowledge and experience to manage the farm.
