What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been working a small farm for years, I am currently studying agribusiness to learn to improve the economic side of many agricultural businesses

Why are you passionate about farming?

I have always loved the freedom and challenges farming presents

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm is in an area with run down soils and a medium to high rainfall, so a livestock production can be run using native fodder bushes to regenerate the soils
