Whilst at school Dave was working hard on his dream of running his own flock of sheep. By the age of 16 the flock had reached over 200 ewes. Continuing with his passion he progressed to become an Agricultural Lecturer and manager of one of the world’s most famous farms “Jimmy’s Farm”
One of the most important aspects of his work is delivering his expertise to our future generations and he believes that education can be delivered in a very proactive and informal way. This work has inspired him, to continue on a much broader scale, telling the story of food production and inspiring others…
Ever alert, Dave watches the relationship between food producers and consumers. He loves to celebrate the vast array of products, production methods employed, and pays attention to the way story is told.
Dave’s unique attributes allow him draw out the best in people, from gleaning stories to pushing people beyond boundaries that they would never expect to face… This skill what has made him so successful in his industry and has credited him inclusion in a host of successful productions.
