I grew up on a small dairy farm in Somerset where my parents milked cows and kept pigs on contract. I was lucky enough to spend three years studying at Brymore School in Somerset, which specialises in horticulture and agriculture. From there I went to Cannington College to study agriculture, while also working on my parent’s farm.
Once I finished studying I began working full-time on the family farm, before going self-employed and running my own dairy goat herd, where I milked around 250 goats for several years. While I really enjoyed this, I had a young family and ultimately I was looking for something with a bit more security so I started working in sales roles. Since joining ForFarmers in 2014 as an account manager my role has evolved and I am now an executive ruminant specialist.
