“You’re right, and we don’t think about that as much as we should.
“So, the book, again, it’s a real passion project.”
The 43-year-old has documented his experience in a book, A Year on Our Farm: How the Countryside Made Me.
He stated: “That is what’s so important for me because I’ve kind of gone around the farm and I’ve been talking about various things that have happened as you say throughout the year.
“But I’ve been linking those to those anecdotes from my career and how really, all that responsibility, that dedication, that I learnt growing up – that work ethic, how that’s kind of implemented itself in everything that I’ve gone on to do.”
