Farming background

I was bought up on a family run farm and was self taught and also learnt a lot from my grandfather who owned the farm, I became the owner when he passed away and was in charge of all machinery and livestock, sadly because the farm wasn’t a big farm it didn’t stand the recession so I then became a HGV mechanic which I started mechanic on farm machinery. I have had much experience in livestock and arable I can confidently drive and handle farm machinery which includes repairs and I can confidently deal with the livestock such as welfare and breeding, I have a lot of experience to offer a company and look to expand my future in farming!


Spend quality time with my family, I like to fish and I also like playing golf.
