I am looking for someone who is willing to give me a chance to learn on the job, building on the foundational knowledge from my Level 4 Certificate in Dairy Cattle and practical experience on my Uncle’s farm.

Other Information

Last year I launched my own business, restoring vintage hardwares. It started from my love of vintage tools, from understanding where they have been to restoring them for the next phase of their journey. As a sole trader I set up this business on my own and run it alongside my full-time employment. I source, restore and sell vintage tools online and manage all aspects of the business (from bookkeeping to marketing).

Marital status

I have a long term partner who also loves the outdoors and the rural lifestyle.

Farming background

Originally from New Zealand, I’ve been working in London for the past couple of years in the Corporate Travel sector, an industry I have been in for over 17 years. Working in this industry has given me the opportunity to work and travel across the globe and equipped me with skills and experiences that I am now keen to transfer to another industry – dairy farming. My Uncle owns a dairy farm in New Zealand that has grown to a herd of approximately 260 cows. I spent much of my youth on the farm and witnessed and experienced first hand the hard work that is required to maintain a successful and productive dairy farm. I have long desired to work in farming, and I feel the time is right for me to make a permanent change!

Hobbies

Gardening – Growing my green thumb. Enjoy both vegetable and flower gardening, and spent time volunteering for my local urban gardening group in London. Hiking – Exploring the outdoors including overnight hikes along the South West Coast path in Cornwall, UK and the Kepler Track in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. Travel – Resided in New Zealand, Australia and am currently in the UK. Have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia, the America’s including a tour of Egypt. Music – Performed as Paul McCartney in ‘The Beatlegs,’ a Beatles tribute show, performing 125 shows across Australia over a 5 year period.
