Overcoming challenges and new beginnings Beyond the Farm Gate

    • Science

Glenden Watts is a seventh-generation farmer on the 2,500-acre Glengower farm in Central Victoria, which his family have owned since the 1870s. Traditionally a mixed sheep and cropping operation, in the last couple of decades it's become a cropping dominant operation.

Glenden studied at Marcus Oldham College before returning to the family farm in 2013, excited and ready to put what he'd learnt into practice. But upon his return, he faced a string of bad luck. Juggling bushfires, drought and a young family, he realised that something had to change.
