Hi im Mark Bashford.

My wife Emma and I run Southern Countryside Services together whilst raising our family of five children .

Originally from Devon, I grew up on my parents Dairy farm. After moving to Kent in 1986 I enrolled at Hadlow College to further my knowledge in Agriculture .

On leaving collage after successfully graduating I worked for a local contractor and then a large  4000 acre country estate in West Kent.

Then from 1996 to 2003 I ran my own contracting business specializing in heavy cultivation work in spring to autumn and fencing , tree surgery in winter. From 2003 to 2006 it was time for a new challenge managing a cotton, peanut and wheat farm in Australia .

On returning to the UK I started Southern Countryside Services undertaking a wide variety of projects but  mainly specializing in fencing for the Agricultural and Equestrian sectors , but we also take on all sorts of projects due to the wealth of skills and experience that I have of the Agricultural , Arbicultural and Forestry industries.
