What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I live on a rental property of 19 acres. I enjoy the rural environment and am a hard worker.

Why are you passionate about farming?

I love the outdoors, gardening has always been a passion. Alongside my job as a sole trader as a textile artist I use plant dyes in my business.

Best days of being a farmer:

Northern Tasmania is my ideal as I have family in Launceston. Market gardening, specialised herbs, native fruits, selling locally produced foods alongside my textiles from a studio on site.
