- Live in Lincolnshire in England. Very much a farming county, but not in the stereotypical small fields and hedges idyll portrayed on TV, rather big fields of barley, wheat, rape (canola), and famously, potatoes and cabbages!
- Never farmed but did used to be an HGV driver about 25 years ago, with my own Volvo F10. Went on to a lot of farms then, with potato bulkers etc, before moving onto European groupage work for a few years - twice a week on the Dover/Calais, or Zeebrugge/Felixstowe, or Newhaven/Dieppe ferries, before the Channel Tunnel was built, although I did actually make a few deliveries to the tunnel build!
- Age 53, now semi-retired, working with dogs
- Got fed up of "Shoot 'em up" games where I was the one getting shot, and driving games where I was never fast enough to actually unlock the good levels! Went through most of the Lego games, as at least you could keep going and didn't always get killed! Came across Farming Simulator" when it was mentioned on the TV series "Mock The Week" by Ed Byrne and Dara O'Briain!
