Deer have long been my greatest passion.
That these beautiful large mammals can exist in large numbers so cheek by cheek with humans is testament to their intelligence and tenacity. I love the deer themselves, and the challenge of managing them to provide a sustainable resource and a healthy herd. I have my own private deer park in Berkshire, with Red, Fallow & largest herd of Axis Deer in the UK.

The Outdoors is my Church – I love the feeling of thriving outside and escaping the modern world. Learning to cook well outdoors is a real skill, and one that I take every opportunity to practise. I love it so much, I decided to make a TV series about it….Farming the Wild
I have no idea why I love old Military vehicles so much! The fact that we can drive these incredible pieces of engineering on the road is just amazing.
As a massive history fan I am fascinated by the story of these war machines and what they have seen. Restoring and caring for them is a nod to our past.
This is a British Army CVRT Scorpion Light Tank that I restored from a wreck.
