What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Why are you passionate about farming?

There's nothing like growing up on the farm. Being able to produce food and have the space to live. The challenges are outweighed by the positives. Nature is a huge part of our lives, a property with mature trees and other natural features that we can restore is our dream.

Best days of being a farmer:

Dream farm is close to albury as my partner and i both work there and love the area. A property that backs onto an area of bush. And has mature trees, a variety of terrain, native pastures that we can harvest seed from to help supplement on farm income. Farming grass fed lamb and beef. Growing indigenous bush foods and producing food to market to the local communities. Best days are spent in our garden, fishing and exploring areas.
