My fondest childhood memories are all from growing up on our family farm west of Forbes in central west New South Wales. Whether it was helping dad move a mob of sheep, weighing cattle and writing down their weights, or helping him with the irrigation (mainly by holding the torch at that stage), these were all activities that majority of Australian’s will never get to experience in their lifetime.
Last year we ran the #WhenIGrowUpIWantToBeAFarmer social media campaign which was aimed at recognising how important young boys and girls are for the future of the Australian agricultural industry whilst also acknowledging the level of passion these youngsters have for the sector. Below you’ll see some of the amazing entries and even some of the finalists from this competition.
This week we’d love you all to say thanks to those aspiring boys and girls and to let them know how much you appreciate their help.
AuctionsPlus x Thank A Farmer
Together we have one goal – to showcase where Australian food and fibre comes from, who makes it and how it’s made. The Thank A Farmer For Your Next Meal brand aims to promote the Australian agricultural industry and its primary producers to a wider audience in order to close the continually widening gap between producer and consumer, city and bush.
