What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Why are you passionate about farming?

Passionate about farming since I was very young growing vegetables (5years old)I then learnt from my father and also developed other idea s and developing techniques along side the csiro and nsw department of primary industries .I was the first in my district to adopt zero till , control traffic and Gps guidance and many other techniques that are now common farming practices.i have had a short break from farming but I am now keen to go again .

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm is just one that is sustainable for future generations .so location is flexible but within a 200 km radius of Temora presents some of the best and reliable farmland in nsw .i am very comfortable with either irrigation (Griffith in the west or Forbes in the north) or dry land anywhere in the south west slopes.
