What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I currently work on a farm, have been here for over 10years on the same property now.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I just love it. Love the work, the lifestyle, and seeing something grow and flourish.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm is on the bottom of the Yorke peninsula. I would run self replacing merinos focusing on wool production with meat as a side profit. Would also run a stock feed enterprise along side the sheep, as well as some broad acre crops (wheat, barley and oats). Would also cut hay and offer some contracting services. The best days would be everyday being able to work on my own farm!
