In our third young farmer focused episode of the series we hear from Sammy Mitchell and her mentor Andrew Bell. Sammy and Andrew have been participating in the 2021 Young Farmer and New Entrant Mentoring Program and they join us to share and reflect on their experiences, and the relationship they have been building as mentor and mentee. 

They discuss how they have been working to increase Sammy’s confidence as she looks at employing her first staff member and Andrew reflects on why his 40-year working relationship with his employee has been so successful.

Expressions of interest are now open for the Young Farmer and New Entrant Mentoring Program 2022. The program provides an opportunity for young farmers to be paired with an experienced farmer to assist them with developing skills to better manage their farm businesses.
