Currently at 25yrs old, I’m head shepherd at Argyle Station located near Waikaia, Northern Southland.
Born and raised on a farm, agriculture is a continuing pursuit for me. It's all too common for young fellas, like myself, to abuse the booze as a solution to incurring problems. Not only is this a short-term fix but can be devastating in the long run.
It has always been a struggle for me to flick off from the passion and take a breath, hence why over the last couple of years I have taken up running in order to time out and refresh the top 2 inches. It's all about doing something different from the everyday hustle that can make a change in our lives.
Movember is a charitable organisation whose funds proceed to go towards 1250 charities globally that have charge to make a difference in our lives and men's health. Charities such as Farm Strong, a support system that I believe is essential, especially during the pressures our rural communities are being put under with our current and future government policies.
