    100th EPISODE: Part 1

    You guys! We made it! We've officially made our first century and we could not be more excited. In honour of this huge achievement, we decided it's about damn time we sit down and interview each other. But this isn't like the other episodes, we deep dive on life and share some raw moments with you all. We hope you enjoy getting to know us both a little bit better than you did before. Thank you for tuning in and thank you for allowing us to make it this far. 

    Vin and Kayla.

    Mitchell East: Zero waste, passion and fruit

    Mitchell East: Zero waste, passion and fruit

    Mitchell East (L: @Mitchell East) is a passionfruit, avocado, cattle and sheep Farmer in the Southern Forests Region of WA with a keen interest in Regenerative agriculture and community development.

    They have developed an on farm passionfruit processing facility which has enabled us to utilise 100% of our passionfruit crops, making it a zero waste enterprise, giving us the ability to buy what was normally unsellable fruit from other farmers and give them a return for their waste. Currently working with five other farmers who have also been able to minimise their waste and gain additional returns for their crops. With this processing we have been able to develop new products with other companies such as ciders, wines, cordials, seltzers and ice cream.

    Monica Ley: Fitting in

    Monica Ley: Fitting in

    Originally from the Kiewa Valley, Vic, Monica Ley (T: @ley_monica) is a 5th generation farmer who currently spends her days as the Livestock Manager at Canowie, a mixed farming operation and home to the Canowie Poll Merino Stud in the Upper South East of SA.

    Having worked across a vast range of agricultural systems across three states, Monica found herself at home in grazing livestock production as she has a keen interest in animal health, reproduction and livestock related technologies. Her interest in the attitudes towards reproductive technologies in the livestock sector formed the basis of her Bachelor of Agricultural Science research, and then later investigated the lifetime maternal production of Merino ewes in post-graduate study. After becoming a cattle station manager at 24, Monica battled many challenges of being young and female in an industry where she felt like an outsider and aims to empower those in agriculture who don’t fit the status quo to take up space and find their place in ag.
