"James worked on our farm last summer and we really enjoyed having him take on some of the jobs we haven't been able to get to.  He is very hard working, trustworthy, and has amazing initiative.  He is truly a great guy and we will contact him again if we need any extra help"

"We were very impressed with James' professional and methodical approach. He listened carefully to the brief and carried it out to the letter. We were grateful for his advice about the best way to deal with the ditches around the barn. This was an extra bit of work that we hadn't previously discussed with him, so we were grateful for him completing it today.

"We had a field which was heavily populated with rushes reducing significantly the amount of hay we could make. We retained James to treat the rushes. He suggested he was likely to get a 75% kill in year one and a second year of treatment would be needed. How wrong he was - he managed a good 95% clearance in one hit - brilliant. Easy to communicate with, very professional and safety conscious; why would we not recommend him?" 

Richard Purchase, Torrington
