About Steven


Steven Hobbs is a 4th generation farmer in Kaniva, West Wimmera, Victoria. The farm is a typical mixed farm, growing a variety of crops including cereals, legumes and oilseeds, while complementing the cropping with both Merino sheep and Prime lambs. A series of dry years with a succession of late frosts, has seen the rotation slashed to minimise frost damage. It was at this stage Steven developed a keen interest in renewable alternative fuel, and has since purchased an oil expeller, built a small bio-diesel plant and produces fuel on the farm from mustard & canola. Steven also incorporates by-products into the farming operation and is looking at value added markets. Steven has a vision of decentralised energy facilities being established where towns generate their own energy requirements
