Field and Fence Services is owned and operated by Andrew Mead. Andrew has a wealth of experience in all aspects of grassland and estate management. He was educated at Bicton College of Agriculture and worked on the family dairy farm before embarking on his own career as a riding school and livery yard proprietor in Hertfordshire. Here he gained first-hand experience of keeping many horses on a comparatively small acreage, which meant that grassland management was a key priority.
During this time, in addition to the managerial side of the business and grassland management, he was responsible for building new fences and maintaining existing ones, alongside running a seasonal agricultural contracting business.
Some years later, Andrew and his family moved to the USA where he ran a fence manufacturing and installation business for nine years. After relocating to Somerset, he established Field and Fence Services, which is an ideal opportunity for Andrew to return to his “roots” and put over 20 years of agricultural and land management experience to good use.
