It’s estimated that over 2.9 million hectares (29 billion square metres) of wheat have been sown across NSW in 2012. In the grand scheme, this 100 hectare block isn’t even a drop in the sea! Unfortunately, without much rain this winter season, the crops around the North West haven’t reached their full potential.

Being in Toowoomba now, I’ll be missing the winter harvest. Perhaps next year I’ll be back on the farm!
