I took this the afternoon prior to us leaving Gatton. I really enjoyed my time in Gatton doing farmwork. At first is was hard, but after a while it was OK. Our coworkers were friendly and genuine. It’s something I believe very few people of my generation will ever get to experience.

The world has changed so much in the past 50 years, and living a simple life, working outdoors in the fresh air and sunshine looking after the land, and reaping what you sow (pardon the cliche!) is a very rewarding experience. Best of all, your work stays at work, and your time at home is your own. No pressure from deadlines or stresses about climbing the ladder. I guess its certainly a good way to lead your life. However, our feet were getting itchy, and we knew it was time for a change.
