Farming background

I was brought up on my parents farm where we have sheep, cattle and have small amounts of wheat and oats so have been doing farm work from young age. I did a 2 year apprenticeship at Land Rover then went but to work for a contractor on his farm, where I did bailing, ploughing, planting and lifting potatoes. When working then got a bit slow I use too go lambing 1200 ewes at a local farm along side doing work for him. I've done fencing around 14 paddock for a race horse breeder. I wanted too try something a bit different so went to work for a grounds work company so learnt how to use diggers and dumpers, how to lay concrete to high standards. also doing yard work fixing tolls,equipment and running shop on yard selling agricultural implants and land drainage.
