What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Currently farming in South Africa for the last 15 years with my father that is retiring soon.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Both my partner and I grew up on farms and the lifestyle is in our blood.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm is not too far from a town with good schools for our 2 boys. It must have good mixed farming potential with good infrastructure and enough water. My best days is spent with my family on the farm in our own environment in which we’re completely comfortable.
