ForFarmers scholarship program

“I’ve been with ForFarmers for just over three years following a successful placement year from Harper Adams University.”

“Alongside my role within VIDA I now also look after the ForFarmers Pig industry Scholarship scheme.”

“I select, manage and mentor the students who come to ForFarmers for their placement year from Harper Adams University. We receive a brilliant number of entries each year, which is always a difficult decision to select one. Our applications are currently open for our 2022-23 scholar so make sure if you’re at Harper to take a look.”

In my spare time

“Most of my spare time is taken up walking my two spaniels Luna and Bertie with my partner Emily or maintaining our garden.”

“If I am not doing this I like to listen, and watch cricket as well as go shooting on the odd occasion. I also keep my hand in the practical side of agriculture by helping out local farmers when they need it.”
