Chris, 30, farms beef cattle, lamb and goat in Kent. Chris lived on a family farm until aged 12 when his father died, subsequently Chris left the farm to live with his mother. Leaving school Chris became a gas engineer but was drawn back to farming after contracting a nearly fatal virus abroad. His dad’s land wasn’t an option to rent and so after a lot of searching (and begging) Chris managed to lease a field and bought 32 in-lamb ewes.
Six years later his business is growing steadily, minus some setbacks, and this year lambed over 500 sheep. The goat herd has grown to over 100 and runs 10 cows, all across Kent.
