Farming background

I Have worked on farms since I was a young lad, I quit farming due to the lack of work in my area, I have spent the last 8 years in the army in the Royal core of Signal but I am now looking to return to a career and passion in farming as I now have a young family and would like to be home a bit more. I’m looking for stability in my work but also for my family as one of my children is about to start school and I do not wish to be moving around while they are at school. The last farm I worked on before joining the army was a beef farm, as well as looking after the 600 strong Angus Herd, my duties also included basic equipment care, day to day running of the farm and lots of arable work. I have kept my hand in the industry by doing bits of work on farms while I have been in the army, although most of this has just been tractor work, last time was in may on a dairy farm milking a Herd of 400. Although I have been out of the loop for a few years I’m a very quick learner and I am always willing to learn. I am also enrolling in courses at collage, I’m a very dedicated and totally professional in everything I do, although I have been away from farming for a few years I have kept my hand in where I can, I’m a very fast learner and I’m always willing to learn as much as I can. Please feel free to message with with in quire you have My reference have requested that you please contact me first before you contact them I have 4 people for contact 2 will give personal reffences 2 will provide work experience on farms please contact me for further details


outside of work my hobbies include Mountain biking Shooting Skydiving I’m a very outgoing person, and am a bit of a thrill seeker
