Mark Merrett: Farmer by day, Vlogger by night

Farming in the northern west Wimmera region with his parents Ewan and Sharon, wife Chelsey, and daughter Alexandra, Mark Merrett (I: @merrett_contracting) runs a 7000 acre mixed operation with about 2000 breeding ewes and 2000 acres of crop as well as doing some contract seeding and windrowing.

At the onset of the pandemic in 2020 with panic buying in full swing, Mark was unsettled that people seemed to think that their food was going to run out. Inspired by some American farmers doing similar things, he set himself up making Vlogs (video logs) of day to day life on the farm to show people where and how their food is produced in Australia.

His YouTube channel has just passed 4000 subscribers, and was recently featured in national media such as The Project.His plan is to just keep making videos of us farming and see where it can take them!
