War News

this is not a long post .... but a reality check time post.

when we moved to the Northern Rivers Region we new very quickly that to be financially viable on the farm, we needed to be producing something.

but in order to write off our costs for investing in this we had to be primary producers.

and in order to be primary producers we had to show financial viability.

in other words ... to make it work we had to have the money upfront to make it all work.

which we didn't and don't.

so we put in our application for becoming primary producers ... made a good case, btw.  showing that with the right fiscal management we could be showing the required $20k profit in 5 years.

our principles?   diversification and sustainable methods.  ensuring that we didn't put all our eggs in one basket.

but this apparently isn't what the government wants to see.

let me first say .... that the guy we dealt with was WONDERFUL.  not often you say that about government employees .... but he was great.

the jist of the situation is this (and this is what our government rep even said) ... that while it is becoming more and more obvious that farming in a diversified manner is, long term, more financially secure -- this is not what the current government regulations support.

the government, you see, would rather us put all our eggs in one basket, roll the dice and hope it comes up trumps .... that to them would mean we are worth backing. (stupid, aye?)

as he said, unfortunately, his hands are tied by regulation and he cannot recommend that we receive primary producer status.

what does that mean for us?  well .... i guess it means that we will be doing things in the TRULY sustainable way ... small, on the cheap and as we can afford it.

a bit disappointed .... but just have to be creative about how we move forward.  there is always more than one way to skin a cat!
