What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been reading a lot of books, talking to different farmers. watching a lot of study's on alternate farming. looking at different market methods.

Why are you passionate about farming?

It is the way of the future, I want to be able to give people the choice in what they eat. where its growing and how its raised. I want to provide a future for my children. And help the land regenerate back to its former glory.

Best days of being a farmer:

The ideal location would be south of Perth located on a few hundred acres, good rainfall, hilly country side. On my dream farm we will be growing native grasses for sale, regenerating the land so it will support a selection of animals for sale, primary business goats. we will a biodiversity farm. Everyday will be the ideal day cause were farming.
