Incremental Gains in Footy and Farming with Dylan Grimes

Incremental Gains in Footy and Farming with Dylan Grimes

Länge: 57:15
We sat down with Dylan Grimes at his vineyard, Mount Macedon Winery, for this weeks episode of Humans of Agriculture. 
Dylan is Co-Captain of AFL team, Richmond Football Club. He has 3 AFL premierships under his belt, he was named 2019 All Australian and received the AFL Players Most Courageous Player Award, as well as the Jack Dyer Medalist Richmond’s Best and Fairest player in 2021 - but over the past few years, Dylan has taken some of his hard work and determination and turned it toward the property he and his wife own.
Whether you're a Tigers fan or not (or you don't follow AFL at all), there's something in this conversation for everyone. 
Dylan breaks down his journey from footballer to farmer - the highs, the lows and the learnings - and how his work on the farm has benefitted his work on the footy field. 
Some of the things covered in this chat are:
Dylan's interest in agriculture from a young age, growing up on a hobby farm and around family farms
The hardship of missing out on the first draft and what Dylan's Plan B was going to be if he didn't get picked up to play AFL
Finding his confidence and identifying his strengths
Creating a strong team bond at Richmond Football Club with Ben Crowe and Damien Hardwick
How he and his wife, Elisha, worked towards the property of their dreams
The early days of the farm, learning to operate a forklift and fixing water mishaps on the way to the MCG
When the Tigers helped with harvest
Learning to ask for help
How has the farm benefitted his AFL career?
