This is our main man, Herms. He’s a farmer, father, handyman, mechanic & has all your transport needs in hand. He knows his stuff, first getting behind the wheel of a livestock truck when he was 13 years old (yep, the road rules were a little lax back then in South Africa...). He’s the most honest & reliable person I know - give him a shout! #westernvictorialivestock #livestocktransport #superstar #startingyoung #agriculturevictoria #southwestvictoria #westerndistrictlivestock

We had a great time down at the Farm World - Lardner Park Expo last week.

It was wonderful to see so many people come down to the #MorningtonPeninsula this weekend for the @wofg2018 (Women on Farms Gathering), including @littlebrickpast's lego farmers!⠀

If you made it down, what was your highlight?⠀

#WOFG2018 is underway with our first workshop, Gill's theory session was earlier this afternoon, and the group are now about to walk to the beach, for their night session, with award winning photographer Gill Fry. Fabulous group of keen photographers!

#WOFG2018 share from @women_in_gippsland of Lyn Johnson, who is one of two women, that has attended every Victorian rural women's event. Well done! Congrats!
.
This weekend approximately 280 women will gather on the Peninsula for @wofg2018 - a gathering for women on farms.
.
Lyn Johnson, she played a role in the “farmhouse revolution". In 1983, she joined forces with her forward thinking dairy-farmer neighbours to start a cheesemaking plant called @taragorivercheese. They, and a scant handful of others like them, started making small batches of fresh cheeses, white mould cheeses, washed rind cheeses and blue cheeses - anything but the cheddar that ruled Australia at that time. It was all about value adding to the milk they were producing on their dairy farm in Neerim South.
.
Lyn is now retired and plays a role in supporting, mentoring and encouraging women in agriculture.
.
We could have stayed and listened to Lyn’s stories all day - what was meant to be a quick delivery of @boomerangbagsbawbaw turned into a lovely half hour chat at her front door.
