Lots of experience in lots of types of plants production and farming. I have heeps of manual equipment to start asap.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Plants and my biggest passion and all I want to do is love around them and make a great living by growing them. I'm always looking up more and more information about all types of plants . As I know alot all ready but with plants there is always more to know.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm would be a mixed farm growing potted plants for the horticulture industry and herbs / vegetables and fruit trees to sell to markets. Living on the property with my fantastic partner and my two boys letting them get dirty and play out side all day long. My perfect days will be the potting days working with others enjoying life growing plants and making a great happy living doing what I want and love.
