TIME FOR SOUTHERN MEN

to hand over the reins

It’s time for southern men to hand over the saddle and the reins to southern girls keen for a career in farming, thanks to an inspiring Kingston-based, rural training initiative.

Mossburn-raised and globally trained farm girl-turned corporate businesswoman Laura Douglas, of Kingston, has literally taken the bull by the horns in a bid to entice more women into farming.

Did you do your homework last month? What’s your child’s (or children’s) love language?

Now for a little game.

Three Truths and a Lie:

1. “ET home phone.”
