My name is Lucas and I am a 26years old agronomist, specilized in vegetal production. My last job was to experiment on potato plants, in Britany, France. I used to drive a tractor (mowing, drilling, ripping, seeding etc.) to make the soil labours, plant the potatoes, make and follow the experimentation plans. I always have a global reflection on the cropping system I work on. I volunteered just before this work (1 year ago) in a dairy farm with 50 cows to help the owner before she sold her farm, in Brittany too. I am used to do the milking (2x4 cows in the milking parlour) with the good hygienic practices, and with care : each one of them has a name. Feed them with hay bale, cleaning and taking care of the litter, cleaning the milking parlour was part of my daily work too. I also worked in international countries, so I am used to adapt myself to different kinds of job, and I am really openminded and curious about everything. I am really ambitious and I wish to work with great employers who I can help a lot and share with them knowledges and more. I live with my partner, Eva, who is also really intersted about farming, she worked a lot in vineyard too, so she will be happy to settle down in the country side. She is more experienced in housekeeping and cooking wich can be also really usefull for you. Please take a moment to considerate my application, I am really passionate by agriculture and skilled, I need someone to give me my first opportunity to show what I can do !
We have a small market garden & orchard. Lucas has been helping out about three weeks. He is a lovely young fella, really enjoy working with him, He is an ag grad – has done internships in different industries. His English is good, makes life easier. Forward thinker, picks up very quickly the routine of what we do. He stands out and knows what we are doing and how we are doing it – strong initiative. Really interested in what we do, we grow biologically and he is very passionate about that. Partner Eva. Here purely to work and make money. I am confident they would be keen to stick around for longer than their 88 days to work and learn a lot. Lovely young couple, I’m really keen to recommend them. Anything Organic & biodynamic would be perfect, conventional farming just as good. Something broad acre perhaps. No hesitation at all in recommending them.
