Farming background

I have cared for animals within different environments for the last 15 years, although not continuously. Most recently I am caring for a variety of poultry, Guernsey Goats and Shetland Sheep and Oasis Down to Earth Farm (charity community farm). My honours project at university focused on energy use across intensive pig farms, how this impacted productivity and animal welfare. On a broader scale, I have worked with more exotic animals from primates to sea birds on voluntary placements in Cameroon and South Africa.


I currently keep my own chickens as well as a very strong vegetable patch! When I am not volunteering I am often visiting country shows during the warmer months, and I am also still trying to play rugby!
