What have you been doing to get farm ready?

currently studying Agricultural Sciences, working as a farm hand while i study. I have also have completed a permaculture design course

Why are you passionate about farming?

i have a passion for sustainable agriculture and permaculture and wish to be able to eventually teach people how they can use these skills in either an urban or broad acre setting.

Best days of being a farmer:

our dream farm would be no more than 2hrs away from an airport due to wanting to use the farm as a teaching platform. best day would be a mixture of looking after the farm and passing on knowledge and skills
