Qualification & subject:
Undergraduate BSc (Hons) Agriculture
Profession:
Business entrepreneur

I’ve been able to develop my business alongside my studies, thanks to the fantastic support I’ve received from the Enterprise Hub and Innovation, Careers and Enterprise team. I even reached the Enterprise Awards finals, which has given me the funds to develop further.

My Hartpury experience

The business lectures on my course have inspired me to take a new enterprise back to my home farm in Zimbabwe.

I grew up on a beef and arable farm, but chose to do my first work placement on a sheep farm in Scotland. The thrill of something so new was brilliant.

I learnt so much and now plan to take it all home and grow my family farm with a sheep farming enterprise. It will give my parents the confidence to venture into new areas of farming.

By completing work experience on a variety of different farms, I’ll have a broad range of hands-on skills which will be invaluable for my future career.
