Other Information

I didn't go to agricultural college as prior to this year I was very unsure of what I wanted to do. This somehow has made me much more focused on wanting to get as much experience as I can to progress and'catch up' as it were. It's nice to realize and find something you can see yourself having a career in.(And be able to actually be outside and work hard).
