Farming background

I was born and raised on my family's beef and sheep farm. I am currently a Livestock Manager on a organic, grade II listed parkland and woodland estate where I am responsible for a herd of pedigree Red Devons, Zwartbles sheep and Oxford Sandy & Black Pigs. Previously I worked as a Stockman for a rare and traditional breed beef, sheep, pig and poultry farm which predominantly supplied meat to London restaurants. I have a passion for poultry and have spent many years breeding birds for the table and for showing. I have worked in shearing sheds and on dairy and beef units whilst in New Zealand.
