Farmer Gregie with primary school kids

Primary Schools

Kids from Grades 1 -7 in Primary School are super inquisitive - and ask all the best unfiltered questions. Sometimes however they might not know such a question existed - as they are not exposed to the same lifestyles, and same conversations as generations before them. 

Farmer Gregie can lead them into new territory, and expand their minds to the previously unknown of of food production, and the work of the farmer.

High Schools

Let's face it - High School kids are young adults! Their thoughts are very sophisticated. Many are starting to process actions that will impact on their life in the coming years.

It is critically important to recognise that they are now applying a level of social conscience to their decisions - more so than previous generations!

Farmer Gregie can help them in this critical developmental phase, by drawing attention to many facts of food - so often overlooked in online forums today.

EKKA Dairy Superintendent,

Farmer Gregie is someone who is passionate about change. Either changing his or another's perception of the world and how he can make it a better place for everyone.

During the Brisbane Ekka 2013 while I was tasked as Dairy Superintendent, I met Greg (the man behind the farmer) and saw a person who was committed to putting in the effort to make a difference.

Business Women's Incorporated

In 2016, we were honoured to have Greg present at one of our forums. He spoke about the struggle Farmers are having personally, financially & mentally to run a business when the big corporations want & expect to pay less than what it costs to produce the product. Greg was so down to earth, honest & comfortable speaking in front of our Ladies. He is professional, compassionate & absolutely knows his topic, which also touched on mental health, from a personal, farmer & employers perspective. He shared the importance of history passed down from generation to generation, how to look after the land, livestock & the environment. I have also seen Greg speak personally with a very large group at his Robotic Dairy which was just a wealth of information, including the benefits of sustainable farming equaling great nutrition & better health. I highly recommend Greg to help educate & inspire a way forward in this crazy world with nothing but love & compassion.

Coach Captain

I met Farmer Gregie whilst in my capacity as Coach Captain (34 years ) doing day tours for senior citizens and educational tours for School Children.Having a rural background, born on the land , worked on the land and for the Department of Primary Industries - I have an interest in growing food, and given that I am aware of the connection between quality food and good health, my meeting Farmer Gregie on his Robotic Dairy farm was a high point in my interests. Whether speaking to Seniors or Children he had an incredible ability to connect with people, and draw them to empathize with the ideas he was introducing to them. Many had not previously thought about where their food came from  let, alone how food quality affected their health. Many of my Passengers were asking for a return visit to Gregie's farm!On Social Media I have seen Farmer Gregie handle antagonists politely and firmly without conceding ground, whilst explaining his point clearly.I now count Farmer Gregie amongst my Friends.
