EP #21: Ben Brooksby
Ben Brooksby is a 5th generation farmer from St Helens Plains in Western Victoria who works on his family property growing crops and breeding sheep.
After posting a near naked picture of himself online where he was strategically covering himself in a truck load of grain, the picture went viral and started a movement. Now farmers all over the country are stripping down and taking creative photo's of themselves with the tag line, It takes guts to get your gear off, as it takes guts to talk about mental health. However behind the fun approach to conveying a message about vulnerability, Ben, The Naked farmer himself, has a story of his own.
