What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have studied approaches from a number of professional fields and approaches to agribusiness management and development, and have built a wide network of experts to draw experience from.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I grew up on my farm in the West Gippsland region, and I wish to see it returned to productive use, and not take for granted the opportunities provided for me.

Best days of being a farmer:

My farm is in Gippsland, where my family and I raise a variety of horticultural crops for our own sustenance and upkeep, as well as raising poultry and sheep, and providing opportunities for locals to find work, support and training to start farming careers themselves.
