Thanks for your hard work. I liked the discussion about growing in Australia, and I liked the discussion about life-farm balance. I'm not yet a farmer but I get kind of stressed out just listening to farmers talk about how they only allow themselves one day off a week. Its concerning because its hard to tell how much overworking is caused by workaholic mindsets, and how much is caused by economic necessity. More discussions with international no-till growers would be very interesting IMO.
I loved this episode. I was absolutely blown away when they said they were doing (I believe it was) $300k on an acre. I understand that they have much higher costs, but that is one hell of an impressive farm!
I definitely intend to do more International stuff. I think there is a lot to learn about efficiency and inventiveness from foreign growers because almost nowhere is like America. We have Johnnys, and Farmers Friend and so many other great resources that other countries just don’t. Also we have markets and space they don’t and our land is (often) cheaper. Glad you all liked it! I really loved this episode. I had a few to choose from and this was the one I though kicked it off the best.
Need to bear in mind that 1 aud = 0.68 usd currently. But yeah incredible sales. Their one acre is very compact though, very little space lost so lots of production ( i spied on Google maps)
Huerta, Yes, that is the conversion rate, however the buying power is the same. $3USD in the US will get you the same thing as $3AUD in Australia. Understanding that helps to outline just how incredible it is.
