Farming background

I have worked and lived on a farm in the past but the location wasn't suitable for my families needs i.e schools. I have also worked as a groundsman which including alot of physical work. I currently work for a haulage company as a porter which involves hands on work, working long hours etc but my passion is for farming and I would be very happy to get back into that lifestyle for myself. I have experience driving some farm machinery but would always ask if I was unsure of anything. I would like a job which would include accommodation but I am willing to work on a farm that does not have the accommodation but I could always find it for my family separately. I'm a Lancashire lad who's hard working and would jump through hoops for another opportunity and willing to relocate. If my CV appeals to anyone then I'm more than happy to come to you and meet you possibly stay the week or weekend help out see how we get on and if you thought I was suitable for the role we'll get some plans into place. thanks for reading.
