What have you been doing to get farm ready?

Why are you passionate about farming?

We are passionate about nature and simple ways of living. We also deeply care about the environment and would like to be as self sufficient as possible on our farm.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farm would be in the northern rivers region, which is where we live. It would be a shared farm where we would grow vegetables as well as farm goats, sheep, cows, chicken and bees. On the farm, we would grow organic fruits and vegetables, make cheese and honey. It would be a self sufficient hobby farm to start with, but we would like it to grow into an agrotourism farm, where we would introduce simple ways of living to tourists visiting from bigger cities. We would like the farm to be a place where everyone can learn how to live in a simpler and more sustainable way, caring for the land, the animals, nature and people's health.
