One Victorian aspiring farming couple has approached a retiring farmer on a large farm and said I love your farm, I’d like to buy it.

We are working out some options to hopefully form the match in February.
A young farmer in NSW has a family farm that is his if he can raise the money. He is farming it at the moment and smashing it out of the park.
