What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I graduated college in Canada with my Associates Diploma in Agriculture from Ridgetown College in 2017 and have been Grain Farming since.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I grew up on Dairy farm in St.Marys Ontario Canada, and am looking to make a start broadacre farming in Australia. I love agronomy and love growing crops and I always look for ways to improve product and save costs along the way.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm would be a 9,000 hectare broadacre farm. With a little bit of grazing livestock. I’d love a couple of irrigation pivots with some nice machinery. My best days would be spent driving a tractor or spray rig and watching the sunrise and sunset during seeding and harvest.
