What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been working part time on a couple of farms. One with garlic, turmeric & ginger, and the other with cattle, sheep, pigs, chickens.

Why are you passionate about farming?

We love the lifestyle and the freedom that comes with farming. We love eating the organic food we grow as far as our health is concerned.

Best days of being a farmer:

We would love to live on a organic farm in Maleny or surrounding areas. We would farm many types of crops and animals with other people involved. We would also like to go to farmers markets and sell our produce.
