Farming background

From a young age I worked on farms. I did a 3 year National Diploma in Agriculture with mechanisation bias. Post college I was asked to return to work for the farm where I completed my sandwich year: 1000 acres of combinable crops; I became responsible for ploughing (JD4755 and 6 furrow reversible plough), cultivation, drilling (6 metre pneumatic Accord), spraying, and combining (JD1188H4). Other tasks included workshop, hedge cutting, coppicing and chainsaw, grain store operation, telescopic forklift and loader work. I have returned to agriculture following a business career to do what I have always wanted to, and am now seeking a permanent position in the UK which I can give my all too.

Hobbies

Cooking and food. Rugby.
