What have you been doing to get farm ready?

For the past 4 years we have both been working on cattle properties in the Northern Territory. Dan worked on one station for 1 year and then on another for 3. Kristina has worked on 3 properties in the past 4 years in the aim to gain various experience.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Dan loves working with cattle, horses and dogs. Kristina enjoys the country and loves working with dogs, cattle and horses.

Best days of being a farmer:

A lush, healthy and sustainable farm somewhere in the Northern part of Australia. We would farm cattle, healthy paddocks, and happy animals. Good working dogs and horses to assist and our own garden and chooks to reduce the grocery bills. On our best day we would sit back and know that it is all working well. Eg. Healthy paddocks, happy cattle, happy horses, dogs and chooks.
