Tom Curnow: From Fire to Farming

Tom Curnow is a 22 year old independent farmer from Scaddan, Western Australia. In 2015, there was a series of Esperance bushfires burning from 15 to 26 November. One of these fires burnt over 128,000 hectares (320,000 acres). On the 17 November during these fires most of the Scaddan Communities Farmers were burnt, including almost all of Tom’s Families Property and our own as well as almost all of our other friends and family from this area. During this day tragically the fire took four peoples life including Freddy Kym Curnow, Tom’s Father. As of 2016, the Cascades/Scaddan fire was equally the worst bushfire in Western Australia in terms of human fatalities along with the Willow Springs/Nannup fire of January 1958.  During and after the fires Tom experienced a series of events that lead him to ultimately single handily run a 6000 acre cropping program with the support of his uncles and twin brother Riley.
