“James is totally reliable; he comes out to help at short notice, loves helping out with our sheep work and is a great hand at clipping time. James kindly agreed to check stock and look after the farm recently, which allowed us to get away for a wee break and did a fantastic job. We know we can call upon him anytime.”

“James has worked for us on many occasions here at Viewfield Romneys and clearly shows a hard working, positive attitude. He is capable of taking on responsibility in all areas of our farming business. He’s keen, and wants to learn, which makes working alongside him enjoyable.”

“We have used James now on many occassions when we need an extra pair of hands (or a bit of muscle) on farm. We can not recommend him enough. Always reliable and hard working, James puts 110% into whatever he has been asked to do! To date James has helped at lambing time, shearing, worked with our cattle and has done some farm-sitting whilst we were away, checking on both the cattle and sheep. We would not hesitate to call on James again. He is able to work either as part of a team or independently and is competant and confident around all manner of animals. We know he can just get on with the job at hand and take appropriate decisions in our absence which is invaluable when away from home.”

“James has been helping us at peak times with our 450 ewe flock for a few years now and we have always found him to be both punctual and helpful, with a good work ethic and a keen interest in the stock he is working with.”
