Where to start..

Gday All, I'm currently living on 1/2 acre block in Emerald Victoria. I hope to be buying acreage over the next few years with the view to farming possibly cattle, chickens but not sure as yet. I was hoping I could get some advise as where to start. I would love to get some time on a working farm. Would this be beneficial? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Terry

Hi Terry and Rach,

Welcome to the hobby farming forum and thanks for the question.

Personally I would read as much as you can to get some good theoretical information ont he particular topics that you are interested in, we have a good range of books for sale in our farming bookshop which you may find helpful

Secondly, getting some practical experience will be critical. Offering your time to a local farmer will be the best way to get some hands on experience and capture some local knowledge.

Regards,
Charlie
