Why are you passionate about farming?

Been since i was a kid,had a veggie patch at 8.always had my hands in the dirt.

Best days of being a farmer:

Location not to fussed,I love the land so much,I could farm anywhere in Australia but as family is very important to us, we would like to be within a couple of hrs of Adelaide in any direction. What Main crop would be winegrapes but we would also like to intergate the vineyard with animals and other horticultural crops. Best days Sitting on farm stead verandah at end of hard day,drinking and eating our farm produce.kids not far playing,over looking property with pride of what we have achieved.
