What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Work experience with a master beekeeper. Have lived and worked on horse stud/Agistment property. Keen to get any work experience in the interim and do any suggested courses.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I am very passionate to become a farmer because I’ve always had the interest. I also strongly believe we need to safeguard Australian farming and allow the older generations pass on the skills (that may not necessarily be captured in books) to the younger generations.

Best days of being a farmer:

Dream farm would be anywhere really in the northern or central NSW area. I want to run an apiary, crops and orachard all on chemical free and sustainable practices. I’d be interested in learning animal husbandry to get some dexter cattle and sheep/goats but would need help as I have no experience in this area except for raisinh a few hens and some work with horses.
