Dream and dream and dream some more
I dropped out of college, I’ve flipped burgers on markets, swept floors in hairdressers, worked as cabin crew, driven delivery vans you name it but I never really found my passion and place until Backfield Farm began
To build a farm from nothing on little to no pennies, learning and hard work was key.
I had to learn how to look after my own sheep, alpacas, pigs, geese, ducks and chickens. Vaccinate, treat, medicate, shear, cut toe nails, cut teeth, learn to grow food, how to keep bees, how to build shelters, plaster, build walls, concrete, work with steel, Learn carpentry to a level Myself and my animals could live in what I made, upcycle and recycle every bit of furniture or pallets I could find.
It’s taken blood, sweat, tears and broken bones to get the farm where it is today from one muddy field at 24years old with 4 sheep to now over 170 animals and I couldn’t be prouder of what the farm has become
I can finally say I have found a path for me and one for the rest of my life
If you have a dream, believe in it, think creatively, buy every book, learn learn and learn some more! If you have a dream/goal in life MAKE IT HAPPEN we hit some serious serious walls and some serious lows but we never never gave up and it all paid off
