Hello, my name is David and I live on a small farm in central Austalia. I haven't always lived on a farm. For many years, I lived and worked in Brisbane and had a conventional life. However, when I turned 50, I realised that I needed to make a change so I decided to quit my job and move out to the countryside. I wasn't sure what to expect. I had some vague ideas of working the land and tending to crops. Thankfully, my neighbours were very supportive and taught me everything I needed to know. I decided to start this blog to help others.

The first mistake is basing their purchase solely on their budget, which can result in you purchasing a cost-efficient tractor that will not meet all of your farm's needs. The second mistake that farmers make, especially ones who are buying a tractor for the first time ever, is purchasing a tractor with the same characteristics that they use to purchase a vehicle.

Home gardens are a standard feature in most households today. The trend can be attributed to the fact that people prefer to grow their vegetables rather than buy from grocery stores. However, with home gardens comes the need for efficient watering, which can be achieved by using irrigation sprinklers. Notably, the efficiency of an irrigation system depends on choosing the right control system. It is important to remember that before you settle on an irrigation system's control system, you should take into account factors that will determine the success of your project.

Energy and household bills are going up – and yet your needs at home remain the same. Trying to keep your garden watered and your cars and home washed is bad enough. If you have land to worry about on top of that, the demand for water can escalate quickly. Just one way of handling this need for more water is to have a rainwater tank constructed on your property. While it may seem like an unnecessary expense now, there are huge benefits down the line.

Everyone should be concerned with food safety. You have probably experienced an unpleasant situation of foodborne illness at one point in life. For this reason, food safety is an issue of concern that must be addressed. Foodborne illness is generally caused by consumption of food particles that are contaminated by toxic chemicals, radioactive materials, or microbial pathogens. Another common emerging problem is food allergies. While most foodborne conditions might be self-limiting, some complications may be so serious and even cause death.
