What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We have been working as a couple/family on a variety of mixed farming operations for the past 18 years.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Farming is what we were born & raised doing. We both have a passion for living & working on the land as do our children.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm would be somewhere in rural Qld on a mixed cropping & cattle property. Our best days would be working as a family to secure our farming future.
