Grandvewe Cheese Farm – video

Video – Grandvewe Cheese Farm, Tasmania

This is a video about farmer and cheesemaker Diane Rae and how she and her children established a sheep dairy agribusiness. It shows scenes of Grandvewe farm and cheesery as she speaks of how they learnt to be sheep farmers; researched dairy sheep overseas; and changed production systems as a result of experience. She tells of the importance of creating an end product, not just growing a commodity, as the key to agribusiness success. The video lasts for 3:23 min and in the second half Rae gives detailed advice to young people wanting to establish an agribusiness.
