Farmer

I was born and brought up in the middle of Birmingham. I am sort of first generation farmer, but will explain more in the talk.

Decided farming was for me by my mid teens. Worked on some farms. Went to the Welsh Agricultural College. Left college to farm where we are now. Met my wife Sarah the year after I left Aberystwyth. Sarah was born in London. We have three adult sons who have travelled and worked around the world.

I have been very lucky over the years to receive some travel scholarships to look at farming around the work and in the UK.

We are currently farming just over 270 acres rising to over 1400 feet in three blocks. I am keen to promote productive farming working hand in hand with enhancing the environment.
