The grandson of Yorkshire dairy farmers, Kent native Sam has strong agricultural DNA. He considers the countryside his office and on the days he isn’t out on farm, he can most likely be found parked up at one of the many beauty spots around Sussex or Kent, catching up on paperwork or calling customers.
Sam graduated from the Royal Agricultural University and initially found himself working in education. As a college farm manager, he enjoyed both learning and teaching, however he quickly realised that he preferred to utilise that skill set in a real-world setting. As someone who likes talking to farmers about farming, Nickerson has proven a perfect fit.
