Ben grew up in the heart of the South Downs National Park, West Sussex. He graduated from the University of Exeter in 2009 with a degree in Conservation Biology and Evolution Ecology. Following a year of milking dairy cows, Ben went on to study Veterinary Medicine at the Royal Veterinary College, London. After graduating, Ben spent a year in a farm animal practice working with dairy and beef clients across Dorset. Interests in poultry and game bird medicine soon became his primary focus and he joined St David’s Poultry Team in June 2016. Ben continues to develop is expertise across all bird and production types. During the summer months, Ben is one of our senior vets on the game bird team responsible for the majority of the game clients in Wiltshire, Hampshire and Dorset.  Alongside Ben Crisp, Ben is a lead vet on the smallholder side of the business, Chicken Vet. He writes and presents CPD on smallholder poultry medicine to vets across the country. 

Away from veterinarian duties Ben enjoys spending his time at sea – sailing, kite surfing and swimming.
