Meet The Team
Monitor Farm Delivery Team
For the 2022-26 programme, each Monitor Farm will work closely with the Programme Manager and a Regional Adviser. The PM and farm team may bring in specialist help to consult on more detailed aspects of the baseline audit.
Monitor Farm Programme Manager
A beef and sheep farmer in Perthshire, where we run a herd of commercial suckler cows and stratified sheep system. After graduating from Newcastle University, I joined QMS as a cattle and sheep specialist in 2019. I’m delighted to be involved in a dynamic Monitor Farm Programme which will bring businesses and communities together to drive change. My role is to coordinate all activity on the 9 Monitor Farms across Scotland encouraging collaboration with farmers, industry and research to seek innovative solutions.

Regional Adviser: North
I work with the three Monitor Farmers in the North of Scotland: Banff and Buchan, Strathspey and Deeside and their Management Groups to help improve the resilience and sustainability of their businesses. I have a strange passion for data and information that drive farm decisions, a lifelong love of livestock and I am happiest in the middle of our stunning landscapes on a bright day, soaking up the enthusiasm of farmers for their craft.

My role is to support the three Monitor Farms in the West Cluster of the Programme which are in Argyllshire, Stirlingshire, and South Ayrshire. I work closely the Monitor Farmers and their local farming community to help build resilient, dynamic farms focused on reaching full economic, social and environmental sustainability.
