Born and bred in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Warren was the son of small business owners. Mentored by one of the best farmers in the district, Warren honed his skills and, by the age of 22, he had purchased his first farm. This gave Warren an opportunity to reinvent himself. A direction, a career path: he was going to pursue his father’s dream of becoming a Farmer. Warren Davies is not just any average Farmer. There is more to this farmer than meets the eye. His eventful life has tested his Resilience, Persistence and Determination, had massive impact on his young family, relationships and finances and made Warren the Farmer he is today – The Unbreakable Farmer.
