Farming background

In the early part of my life I worked in hotels and bars, I have also worked in a Co-op. I have been self employed for last few years. I work with sheep, gathering, lambing, rolling wool etc. I grew up on a farm but only got serious about sheep farming in the last 10 years. I worked on my father's farm and helped out on friends farms for a few years, then took the plung at self employment. I started lambing in Jan this year and finished in May, I worked on half a dozen different farms during that time and loved it. I was mostly left in charge of the lambing I was hired to do although I always had someone to answer to. I worked alone and with others. I have worked on a lot of farms around my area and most of the work I have is because of word of mouth. I have been to Mull to help gather sheep in there. I have one dog but very willing to get another one or two if needed. I also catch moles in the winter months, have got quite good at it over the years.


I like cooking, baking and making jam. My jam came 5th in local Cattle Show, it was better than that I promise. I have started walking a lot more and i have found i really enjoy it. I visit lochs, castles and walk up some of the hills round about me when i have time. I enjoy spending time with other farmers and having a bleather about what we could do to fix all the problems in farming. I like to go out for lunch or dinner with my close friends, they understand im quite busy sometimes so its something i reall enjoy when we get to do it. I watch a sports, rugby 6 nations and football. I do a huge amount of reading from the Scottish farmer to a fictnal crime book.
