IT’S safe to say that Wayne Lording, of Lording Estate, has his plate full.

At just 43 years of age, the Victorian farmer has a list of career achievements longer than most people twice his age.

But you get the distinct feeling he is just getting started.

Mr Lording grew up with farming in his blood; his family came out from England in 1861 and settled to farm in Portland.

The Lordings farmed beef, sheep and dairy, and now a fifth generation farmer himself, Mr Lording has expanded into numerous other fields: horses, olives, Blonde d’Aquitaine, Brahman, drones and green energy.

And his personal range of career fields is even wider.
