What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We have been slowly building up lease blocks to where we are today plus we own all our machinery

Why are you passionate about farming?

It's been in my family for over 500 years it courses through my veins it's a way of life for us and we are a team and that makes us very very good at what we do

Best days of being a farmer:

We would love to farm in the Central Wheatbelt. We currently farm Wheat and Barley and Lupins, we would like to farm Canola also. On our best days we go out as a family and involve our children in our farming interest and knowledge.
