Head of Farming

 

Starting my career in farming at JW Grants where I learnt about vegetable growing. I've also worked for a number of other companies including DB Grants and OLGA. I gained experience in different roles on farms from planting, harvesting and yard management. 
I joined TH Clements in 2001 where I trained with my Father as Assistant Manager. I took over the role of Farm Manager in 2005. 
Since joining the business in 2001 we've progressed from farming 1000 acres to 9000 acres in 2017. Potato crop has progressed from 150 acres in 2001 to 550 acres in 2017. 
As well as being head of farming I also look after the whole Potato enterprise including sales. 

 

Outside of work I like to participate in Golf and Badminton and socialising at the Admiral Nelson - regularly!
