2012 Australian Year of the farmer celebrates the hard work of everyone involved in producing, processing, handling and selling products from 136,000 farms across the country.
If you haven’t had the chance to visit a sheep and wool property and see what shearing time is all about then take a look at this great YouTube video featuring Armatree wool.
If you’re hungry for more and would like some hands-on farm experiences check out the FarmDay website. Held each May FarmDay involves a farm family hosting a city family for a day of real hands-on experiences.
