What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been working as a contractor on and off for approx 10 years. learning skills from as many different types of farming as possible.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I have a passion for working on the land for as long as i can remember, I have always wanted my own farm and I have been learning as many skills in the industry as i can, so when the time comes i will be able to run a successful and rewarding farm business.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm is anywhere, i have a passion for the land and just enjoy working and living on it I feel at home on a farm away from the hustle and bustle of the city. I enjoy working towards a goal, and having strong structure in place to reach these goals. One of my goals would be, to be able to have a farm setup and systems in place allow for me to have a successful business and family life when the time comes. I would like to have a legacy that one day i will be able to move on to my children.
