Let's hear from Andrew, an Active Farmer @Burrumbuttock

Last week Allana, our Active Farmers trainer @Burrumbuttock caught up with one of her regular male participants, Andrew Vile. 

Andrew has shared some information about himself, plus has answered some questions to help us inspire other men and women considering heading along to their Active Farmers class and just 'give it a go'!
