What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We have been slowly building our land holdings from our first block in our late teens of 150 acres. We both see a lot of benefit from ongoing study in business management, sheep husbandry. What we lack in equipment we make up for in passion and hard work.

Why are you passionate about farming?

We just love it! What better way to bring our children up but on a farm where they can cuddle new borns and see the direct outcome of their work.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm is in the South East SA or West Wimmera VIC, working with Sheep and Cattle and crops if the land allowed. Our best days would be the rewarding ones, feeling like we have achieved after marking or shearing, fencing or scanning.
