What have you been doing to get farm ready?

I have been working on building a contract farming business which enables me to own up to date machinery so I am able to start farming with the best practices and minimal machinery costs from day one.

Why are you passionate about farming?

There’s just something about it I’ve always loved from a crop of wheat out in head waving in the wind to the sleepless nights through planting and harvesting. I have a passion to supply the best possible product to the end user through efficiency and perfect application timing.

Best days of being a farmer:

My dream farm is 5-10000ac in the golden triangle producing predominately grains and pulses. That’s a hard one to answer because every day farming is a good day but driving around looking at crop coming through the ground after a rain event would have to be a highlight.
