I am an all arable farmer based here near Lechlade, I farm 3,500 acres of which I own 300 acres , I rent and contract farm 3,200 acres.  We also do some general contracting on a number of local farms which is another small part of my business.  We grow all combinable crops – winter wheat, winter barley, spring barley, winter rape, peas and beans.


I started farming in my own right in 1991, I built up my business from nothing to the size it is today.  Before that I trained as an agronomist, and still today, keep up my BASIS and FACTS training, I have a very good grasp of the subject and put it to good use.  I also worked as a farm manager before I started farming. 

In 1995 I was lucky enough to buy my own farm and farmhouse and this has been my base ever since.  I have a first class staff of mainly young men who are much liked by all my clients, they are an extremely well trained and professional team. We have won many first prizes including oilseed rape establishment, reflecting the standard of my farming against strong competition.
