What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Other than aviation I have always worked in Ag. I grew up in a farming family in qld and have tried to build my farm skills in my own time.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I have always had a passion for farming and a dream to own my own farm. I believe that agriculture will be instrumental in maintaining our future.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm would be fairly close to Perth possibly around the Williams or Brookton area. I would even love the Merredin area. I would farm broad acre, wheat, barley, canola, while also having a go at growing some unusual crops like spelt or Durham wheat. The best day would be harvesting a crop and bringing a consistent high yield.
