What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We have started to look for properties in the area we want to farm. We will be hoping to buy an acre or two to start out on and build a house. Then move on to something bigger.

Why are you passionate about farming?

We are looking to get out of the city and start a new life out on a farm

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm is in Lismore / far north coast of NSW We are interested in farming a few different things with a focus on organic, free range and permiculture. Our best days would be selling our top produce to a fruit / veg store and whatever wasnt taken to be sold at a small store on the side of the road.
