I spend my life spruiking there is a career in agriculture for everyone from A to Z no matter what stage of your career you are at. Tonight I found myself sitting at dinner with two ex policemen turned farmers. One growing avocados and the other pecans.
I have done many agriculture career pathway profiles in my life but nothing comes close to Geoff Bugden
Geoff who is now a proud pecan farmer began his working life as a boilermaker, then a professional footballer playing first grade with Newtown followed by 140 first grade games with Parramatta and numerous State of Origin appearances, followed by 12 years as a Detective in the police force and now a proud farmer
Having never laughed so much in my entire life – he certainly could have had a career as a comedian
“Farming, requires commitment whether there is leaf on the tree or not.” Geoff Bugden Pecan Farmer
Geoff Bugden- boiler maker, 1st grade rugby league player, Detective, Pecan Farmer and the funniest man you will ever have at your dinner table
and to top it all up I got to meet the legendary Glenn Morris who recently rode his horse across the harbour bridge in support of Native Vegetation and present with NSW Young Australian of the Year finalist Anika Molesworth

One thought on “Geoff Bugden – Professional footballer, Detective and Pecan Farmer – Yes there is a career for everyone in agriculture”
Nice to see people turning to a career on the land raising crops. I hope we see more and more of them!!
