To have such open and honest communication in one room was really a breath of fresh air.  Being new to farming, I can often feel alone in my struggles and after yesterday, I have come away with renewed vigour and passion for what we are doing here on farm and I have made some great new connections.Michelle Ellis, Grazing Paddocks
