J.B. Gill enjoys spending time on his new Kent farm and is hoping to make a second career as a farmer. The 'Makes Me Wanna' singer bought a state of the art John Deere tractor earlier this year and is pleased with the progress he has made transforming his Kent home, in South East England, into a working farm. He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I do all the mucking out and I have some chickens. I want to try and get into it. Bandmate Aston Merrygold added: "He will be supplying to Tesco and Sainsbury's soon. He's really into it."The 25-year-old boy band heartthrob is taking his new role as a farmer very seriously and hopes to make some money from his new obsession.J.B. - real name Jonathan - said last March: "[The tractor is] amazing, one of my favourite ever buys."The farm is a business investment as well as a hobby. I love the outdoors, it gets me away from the city and the mayhem that comes from being in a band."I want pigs, cows, chickens, sheep -- the lot. I'm going to be a proper farmer."
