What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We are currently managing at the moment and have a few run off blocks where we have some beef stock. We have 30 cows in the milking herd and we have 25 heifer calves this year. We also have another 60 cows out on lease.

Why are you passionate about farming?

We love animals and the life style farming brings. There are many opportunities in the farming industry and we want to get ahead for our family.

Best days of being a farmer:

We would love to go organic milk and have share with the company that buys the milk. we want to start our own organic food farm to supply local demand. We are all about self sufficient ability and knowing what we are eating and drinking. We want our children to be grounded and learn everything farming.
