What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Why are you passionate about farming?

It isn't really a question I can answer, I just love what I do.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm could be anywhere, though I do prefer a place where it rains. my current preference for location is near Adelaide due to fmily circumstance and this would be for at least the next ten years. Some of my best memories at work include mustering sheep in the pastoral region, enjoying the scenery and working my dogs, along with time spent with various duties working with cattle in the stud industry.
