What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Building deposit and sourcing staff

Why are you passionate about farming?

Because farming is our country’s future. We as a country need to secure our food and water security. The populace of lethargic aussies appears to be dis interested while our country is sold off to foreigners. We risk losing our access to affordable quality food because of this. I aim to be a farmer, it’s in my DNA. My Haden bloodlines extend to Riverina NSW country, history of wheat, sheep, cattle plus proud Wiradjuri descendant.

Best days of being a farmer:

My best days would be spent designing management farm plan, teaching WWOOFERS about Hemp farming and custom building a hempcrete display office.
