I went to Hartpury College to study agriculture and mechanics which I did very well at, having said that, with farming I believe the gift of experience is also vitally important on any farm and with 16 years of farming experience I have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience in many farming sectors.

Other equipment experience

I have a huge amount of machinery and equipment experience and have been regularly tasked with very important jobs such and drilling and bailing where keeping your eye on the job is a must! I am also not afraid to muck in with the less glamourous jobs whatever they may be. I can also drive a 360 excavator but don't hold a ticket for it.

With over 16 years of stock experience I am not afraid of mucking in with all husbandry duties.

Farming background

I have worked for a few farmers now and each one has taught me a great deal about the farming world. From contracting to milking cows and from selecting the prime beef animal from stock I have raised to harvesting premium wheat, The knowledge I have gained is so important to me. For me farming is a way of life, not just a job! I also have a vast knowledge of machinery and I can easily service, maintain and repair equipment on my own. I am also very handy with a welder!

Hobbies

I thoroughly enjoy watching and playing rugby, however the farm comes first so playing rugby has been put on the back burner for now!
