Background

The Farm Business Survey provides information on the physical and economic performance of farm businesses in England, to inform policy decisions on matters affecting farm businesses. It is intended to serve the needs of government, government partners, farming and land management interest groups, and researchers.


I work as the Administration officer for the Farm Business Survey.  I carry out the day to day management of the units’ research projects, ensuring targets and deadlines are met.  


I was born and brought up on a mixed livestock farm in Northumberland and prior to joining the Farm Business Survey in 2002 I worked as Office Manager for Genus Embryo Transfer in both Cheshire and Northumberland.
