Sam Marwood is a community driven problem solver from central Victoria who is redefining the farming and agriculture industry. With a background in environmental science and entrepreneurship Sam spent his early years as a policy advisor to the Victorian Government before connecting to his roots- farming and all things the environment. In 2016 Sam recognised an emerging farming problem. Retiring farmers were simply selling off vast amounts of property and with it a deep understanding of farming. All the while young aspiring farmers found it near impossible to acquire the capital and acute knowledge to begin a new generation of farmers. Answer: Cultivate Farms. A match maker for retiring farmers and want-to-be farmers alike. Since its launch, Cultivate Farms have nurtured many new farming partnerships across Australia.
