Farming background

I do not come from a farming background but I have lots of experience with a range of different stock. I started out working on a farm park (on placement), this was around lambing time of year. I fell in love with the lifestyle and looked for more work elsewhere to experience it all! Since then, I have mainly worked with sheep but when at college; I have also had the opportunity to work along side dairy and beef herds, pigs too. I have been on many different placements and have thoroughly enjoyed being around livestock. I would love more experience in the dairy sector but I am up for anything!


I spend time looking after my animals but travelling to the Isle of Wight regularly!
