What have you been doing to get farm ready?

We run an urban farm, high intensity leafy greens production. We have successfully propagated and grown Wasabi in the tropics with a proprietary method (creating and using our own I.P.) We have marketed and sold our farm produce so that we sell 100% of everything we produce and are unable to meet the demand for our produce, we would be able to expand 4 fold immediately and have that produce be sold as soon as it was ready.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I have been involved in farming or food production my whole life, it is something that is ingrained in me and it is also where my passion lies. There is no greater achievement than producing products from the land that are so high quality that other people want them, by choice, over other products. Farming is hard work, but it is uplifting and fulfilling work. I don't believe there is a better use of your time than being on a farm, nurturing your land and the environment and producing high quality farm produce.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our perfect farm would be located in North QLD and feature the opportunity to grow a mix of crops, from leafy salad greens, microgreens, edible flowers and herbs to exoctic crops like Wasabi, cut flowers, finger limes and ornamentals. Any day that can be spent on farm, caretaking the land and producing crops has to be a great day, there doesn't have to be anything special about it for it to be a perfect day for our family.
