I have always wanted to farm, having grown up around the industry with my family and friends.
I currently work in an office job and until the Coronvirus hit I had to live away from my family in the week to work, only seeing my boys at the weekends.
Working from home this year due to the virus allowed me to spend the time working on setting up our farm with my two boys in the time I wouldn’t normally have with them outside of work hours.
The last few months have confirmed my love for farming and being able to provide a great product to customers. It has also proved two other things - how expensive farms are to set up and how much time things take to get done without that equipment.
I want to move away from the office work and focus on expanding the farm to provide local products to customers on a full time basis, to do this I need farming equipment and the ability to reduce the hours in my current job to become a full time farmer.
I have set this fund up to support this journey to allow me to invest the time into this venture and to support the development of my new business opportunity.
