What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been working on a lucerne farm and selling the product produced and I am now looking to lease a block.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I am passionate about horse breeding, breaking and training.

Best days of being a farmer:

My best days would have to be doing a pipe shift right before sunrise. Switching on the pump and satisfyingly looking at all the irrigation pipes pumping water over the crop. Then heading and working horses and going off and doing a few hay deliveries.
