Farming background

Grew up on a farm and was involved from a young age with the arable aspect of farming, spending many years in tractors and combines. After gaining experience working as a plumber and doing building work I went back to working on a farm, but this time on the livestock side. I spent my days looking after the livestock and meeting their daily needs and treating them where necessary, driving the tractors to clear out the sheds and move muck, and building new sheds as well as maintaining existing buildings and equipment.


I enjoy walking my dog in the countryside, shooting and fishing.
