Who we are!

We are a husband and wife team whom established A Smart Farmer in 2010 to start performing the milking barn at the Sydney Royal Easter Show. We have since performed at multiple rural ag shows and the Royal Melbourne Show. During our time performing we have developed a passion for educating the public about the Australian dairy industry. Our team of pure bred jerseys have been hand picked to ensure that all students have the best experience with the animals as possible. All our animals are cared for with the highest standard of animal welfare to ensure healthy and happy cows.
