Last weekend I was lent a copy of Bill Hampel’s ‘Against the Grain’ and was not surprised to see Marian’s story on Page 39 featured along with 14 other inspiring Australian farmers

“a love of nature and farming and a thirst for knowledge’ drives this little pocket rocket
“There is a refreshing honesty about this life, everything you do makes a difference. The joy of being outside with the animals is something that I can’t put into words. It’s where I really feel at home”

Read her latest blog and you too will see why people like Marian as so important and why they are celebrated
