My desire to succeed as an Australian dairy farmer in a struggling food industry became the catalyst to uncover the roots of a very real food crisis affecting farmers globally. What began as a personal journey has now become a public mission to educate the masses and find sustainable solutions to secure a future for the next generation of Australian fresh food farmers.
In 2016 I started filming a documentary investigating the disconnect between our city and country folk from a farmer’s perspective. This pilgrimage began in the Australian dairy industry, and very quickly expanded to include all food-based agriculture across Australia. Specifically looking into how this relates to the reality that farmers are going broke and the impact this has and will have, not only on the future of our agricultural industry, but also on the long term mental health and financial ramifications of our farmers going broke.
Filming the Australian leg of the documentary has created more question than answers.
The time has come to look into our overseas farming communities to see first-hand how Agriculture and the farming communities, interconnect with their nearby cities. To identify both the common links, and any solutions we may be able to adapt to our Australian farming crisis.
In the coming year, I plan to continue my pilgrimage across the globe in search of answers to the financial woes of our Australian farmers. I will visit 52 Countries in 52 weeks sharing my journey along the way.
But, I cannot complete this potentially industry saving project, without your help. Your support through a small contribution will breathe life into this project - and by following Farmer Gregie on Facebook and Instagram or subscribing for free to his YouTube Channel - you will be making a positive difference to Our Fresh Food Future...here in Australia, and potentially around the World!!
Most importantly, by contributing at least $10 towards this epic journey, you will be invited to follow my pilgrimage via an invitation only facebook group. Your contribution will grant you exclusive access to the behind the scenes, the unedited reality of our global food farming industry. You will literally see what I see...and feel what I feel - as I dig deeper into the cultures of other countries.
Here’s how even a small contribution can help me complete this pilgrimage:
1. A $10 contribution will receive private access to exclusive, raw documentary footage of the pilgrimage as I visit each country. This offers you incredible value for money - for it will have cost you only 20c per week for the coming year, to be able to watch the entire journey unfold online :)
2. A $25 contribution will purchase you a copy of my current book 'HOLY COW!!' (all profits from book sales will go directly towards this trip)
3. A $35 contribution will purchase you a copy of my current book AND Grant you Exclusive, private access to view the raw documentary footage of my pilgrimage as I explore this highly alarming reality.
4. Larger donations of $200 or more will receive promotional shout outs and acknowledgement in the documentary credits…
Of course, any contribution you can make is greatly appreciated and will help me make this happen – in fact, it’s true if only 20,000 people were to each donate $10 - this pilgrimage is all systems go!!
Can't wait to take YOU with me on this incredible ride!!
