Here’s what I ate, and the activities I did inbetween eating, over the last weekend.

Back to Rural Oz!

The best part about working for a start up, is the range of clients you can acquire. My company works with Lawsons Angus, who rear and sell high quality Angus bulls all across Australia.

Local Produce, Yes Please!

On the way to the supermarket, I took a short cut and was greeted with a sign that said ‘Farmers Market Today’, and of course I was going.ย 

A Day of โ€˜Researchโ€™

The festive period was officially over as I had gotten back into my work schedule; along with the gym and touch footy in the evenings. It wasnโ€™t long until the weekend came around though; and since we had worked hard for just under two weeks Cherie and I thought it would be great to go…

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s I’ll See You Soon

The dreaded last day on the farm was looming over me and I was trying my best to not think about it.  We finished picking a couple of days before I was meant to leave; it was very bittersweet. I kinda didn’t want to stop picking, now that I had gotten good at it!  We…

France and America Have Invaded!

Kira, Kieren and I had gotten used to being the three best friends that anyone could have; along with Salty, Sugar and Spice too. However, things were about to change as we were notified that three new pickers were arriving.  First up we had Brice and Saskia a 25 year old French couple and then…

Animal Farm ๐Ÿฐ๐Ÿฅ

Don’t let the title fool you; this story has a happy ending!  It was an average day on the patch; Kieren, Kira, Andrew and I were all picking away. Ellie then pulls up on her tractor and walks over to us. Our immediate thought was we had done something wrong, but no it was one…

A 100kg Day

So we’ve been picking for two months now and I’m still bloody shite!  Everyday the top three pickers are Luke, Jess and Lucy, meanwhile Kieren, Connor and I fight not to be in last place.  The aim is to reach a 100kg total each; which the top three have hit multiple times but the three…

The RSPCA are Watching…

The owners of the farm had gone away to Melbourne for a few days so myself, Ellie and the two other backpackers (Jess and Luke) were tending to the farm.  There wasn’t much to do so life was pretty chilled.  On our lunch break I picked Ellie’s brains about the livestock farms around Australia.  I…

A Trip to Tin Can Bay

As I was the first backpacker to arrive, there wasn’t much work for me to do so instead I helped around the house and farm.  The farmers took me down to their other house in Tin Can Bay one night, where we met their friends and had a curry. It was very different compared to…

First Day on the Farm

As I awoke, I tried to make sense of my surroundings and was greeted by the sound of birds and tractors. I immediately remembered that I was on a farm!  I was given a tour by a local Aussie woman who worked on the farm and it was great! We hopped in an old jeep…
