Gidday, my name is Matt Austin. I was brought up on a lifestyle block on the outskirts of Pirongia- a small village out of Hamilton. I attended St Peters School in Cambridge. I have one older brother. My hobbies include hunting, rugby & anything that gets me in the outdoors. For as long as I can remember I have wanted to become a farmer and have taken any chance to get out and learn more to help me succeed. Once I leave Waipaoa I would like to get a shepherding job and move my way up the ranks eventually moving into management on a large sheep & beef farm.
