I worked as a post-doctoral research biologist before working on my family’s mixed farming estate in Kent. My wife’s family are farmers in Brazil, and I have been involved in the planting and management of a rubber plantation there. I have also been involved in setting up agricultural investments in the USA and New Zealand.
I have a strong interest in agricultural & horticultural research, and enjoy bringing new ideas and techniques to bear on our arable, sheep and fruit farming. In addition to participating in publicly funded research projects I conduct private experiments in order to improve current production techniques and to develop new activities.
