Hear what some of GO.FARM’s graduates have to say about their time in the program

“I’ve learnt so much already and I’m only half way through the agribusiness program! I’ve felt supported by the whole team and landed in a place that is doing amazing things. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the program!”

Rachel grew up in Melbourne and didn’t have any farming experience prior to starting with GO.FARM, but became interested in the industry after completing a Bachelor of Agriculture, majoring in Economics at the University of Melbourne. Rachel completed a farm rotation at Petro Station where she was involved with the broadacre harvest and is now completing rotations through the Melbourne Farm Hub teams.

“I have completed my first month on farm and have already gained exposure to all aspects of the business. I am excited to continue learning valuable knowledge before my move into the financial and investment side of the company.”

Growing up on New Zealand’s South Island and after Studying a Bachelor of Commerce specialising in agriculture at Lincoln University in NZ, Ethan has made the move across to Australia for the GO.FARM Agribusiness Graduate Program. He is currently completing his Farm rotation at Petro Station, a large-scale broad acre cropping farm north of Mildura.

Ethan O’Toole – Agribusiness Graduate 2024

“My time on farm has allowed me to build a deeper knowledge of large-scale farming operations, and to really understand the core of GO.FARM’s business.”

Originally from Robe in South Australia, Sam has found his place in the GO.FARM Agribusiness Grad program after completing a Bachelor of Law and Commerce from the University of Adelaide. Sam has family connections to agriculture and hopes to combine his learnings from the graduate program with my previous studies and contribute to feeding a growing population responsibly.

Sam Altschwager – Agribusiness Graduate 2024

“The team at GO.FARM has made this new learning curve an enjoyable experience. They readily offer guidance and support, while also presenting me with challenges. I am placed on Sandmount Farms for the duration of the graduate program and have found the farming team’s welcoming demeanour to be instrumental in easing my transition to Australia.”

After completing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Agriculture from Lincon University in New Zealand, Olivia has started the Farmland Graduate program with GO.FARM. and is located at one of GO.FARM’s largest farms in Northern Victoria. Olivia has previous livestock experience and is enjoying working with the Horticulture team at Sandmount.

Olivia Hall – Farmland Graduate 2024

“I’m currently 3 months into my 12-month Farmland Graduate program at Sandmount Farms and I’m gaining new experiences and knowledge each day. I grew up living regionally and always had a connection with the agricultural industry and getting involved on family friend’s farms. With a passion for the industry after completing year 12, I went on to study for two years at Longerenong Agricultural College, where I gained my certificate III and IV in Agriculture, Diploma of Applied Agronomy, and Advanced Diploma in Agribusiness Management.”

Former Graduates

Joe Barlow

Graduate 2019

“The graduate program immerses you in the business and means that you have the opportunity to understand the business from top to bottom from very early on in your career.”

Growing up on a family-run farm and grain business, Joe Barlow has an extensive history and a deep understating of agriculture in rural Australia.

Joe’s ability to immerse himself in the company has been fundamental in his successful career progression, from his time as a graduate to his position as Head of Farmland Development where his love for agriculture has only grown.

Anna Keenan

Graduate 2021

“Through the program, I’ve had exposure to all aspects of the business and now I’m honing in on the investor relations side.”

Investor Relations Associate, Anna Keenan joined GO.FARM as an intern in 2021 and has developed the skills and knowledge to assist in managing GO.FARM’s investors.

While Anna grew up in Melbourne, visits to her grandparents’ farm in Yarrawonga planted a seed for a career in agriculture. Having studied Agricultural Science at The University of Melbourne and majored in economics, Anna has taken that knowledge and brought it to life in ways she wouldn’t have thought possible.

Joe Gibson

Graduate 2022

“I have completed six months on farm and am now in the middle of my stint in the office doing financial research and accounting. It’s been a wonderful learning experience.”

Growing up on a sheep and cropping farm in Western Victoria’s Tatyoon, Joe Gibson knew he always wanted to give back to the broader agricultural industry. For Joe, undertaking a graduate role with GO.FARM Australia was the perfect opportunity to do just that.

Ultimately, Joe wants to forge a career where he can maximise farm productivity, improving farm operations across Australian agriculture.

After the Graduate Program, Joe spent time as an Investment and Research Analyst, and is now the Cropping Manager for Goulburn Valley.
