What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Have a full farming plant/machinery and also have about 20 head of dairy cattle

Why are you passionate about farming?

It is part of my family for generations and I love producing something that feeds the world.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm is on the Darling Downs south or west of Toowoomba. It will have a dairy to milk 150+herd and cropping to reduce feed costs. It will have a 3-4 bedroom home for our family to grow up in. On our best days, I am milking my cows, teaching my kids how to farm while making a future for them and loving every moment of it.
