Tom joined the Farm Consultancy Group in February 2019 as a part-time consultant focusing on business planning, grassland management and technical advice.
Tom graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2002 and developed his career on a range of dairy farms in the UK and New Zealand. In 2007 he pooled his resources with a former employer to take on the Contract Farming Agreement of a 400 acre dairy farm in North Dorset, which he is still running today.
Having come from a non-farming background, Tom has hands-on knowledge of making farming pay with limited capital, whilst retaining a sustainable work-life balance.
Tom will be specialising in improving output from pasture and forage, planning for business expansion; and profitable dairy and beef systems, with an emphasis on management of people.
