What have you been doing to get farm ready?

My wife and i have been dairy farming together on a large scale Organic dairy farm since 2011. Between the two of us we have dairy experience in high and low rainfall areas e.g.(current) Northern Vic, Southern SA, KingIsland TAS & New Zealand.

Why are you passionate about farming?

Mikahl and I are extremely passionate about farming for a lot of reasons mostly as it affords our young family a great lifestyle and we are excited to be part of the future of sustainable farming in Australia.

Best days of being a farmer:

Our dream farming location would be an organic dairy property around Gippsland Victoria or coastal South Australia farming is a way of life for us and we love and respect every aspect of farming with a lot of passion.
