I have PA1&2, B+E & forklift tickets. I have experience in cultivations, harvest operations, silage & hay production, lambing and general livestock work. I also run a small equestrian paddock maintained, cover crop & herbal ley business. I have a strong interest in agronomy, soil health and regenerative agriculture.
