Wilrae Farms - Bill Sternbeck, Southside Qld
Bill, a retired farmhand with a passion for woodwork, has found solace and purpose in his beloved hobby. With a keen eye for sustainability, he skilfully crafts farms using recycled hardwood, giving new life to discarded materials. Despite facing the challenges of hip dysplasia that prevent him from continuing his farm work, Bill has ingeniously redirected his energy towards creating whimsical farms for children. By immersing himself in this fulfilling pursuit, he not only keeps his mind and hands occupied but also spreads joy and wonder to young hearts. Bill showcased his exceptional creations at the Nanango market. However, like many others, he experienced a temporary pause in his endeavour for the past two years due to the interruption caused by the global pandemic. Now, with renewed determination, Bill is ready to reintroduce his enchanting farms to the world.
