What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I'm specialised in microfarming so doing lots of jobs regularly. Includes composting fertilizing, planting, pruning, picking, fixing, selling.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I want to grow organic food for people, I want to spend my life showing people you don't need machines for growin lots of plants, in a vegetable garden and orchard living a quiet life.

Best days of being a farmer:

Somewhere near the east coast where there's access to plenty of water and poo, where I can microfarming on a few acres growing greens and vegetables changing with the seasons. Using just forks and shovels and wheelbarrows. And where I can master the art of natural energy. Using wind and gravity to power my house and farm. With enough space to orchard farm and make compost. My wife and I can have a family with lots of animals and space around.
