Danny Kinnear is chasing his dream.
The 26-year-old small scale farmer and his girlfriend Katie Pendleton are busy pulling apart an old horse float – and putting it back together again complete with a sink and ovens.
If all goes to plan they hope to cart the float from market-to-market in February selling delicious Portuguese tarts and other foods made with seasonal produce.

To achieve this goal the duo need $6000 – they are already halfway there.
Mr Kinnear, 26, said a startling statistic that only three per cent of Australians were farmers made him want to contribute.
Mr Kinnear and Ms Pendleton make the food using home grown ingredients from their farm, their neighbour’s farms and if they can’t source it from a farm – the local store.
“My ultimate dream it to create a large restaurant – the food and trailer are the beginnings of this dream,” Mr Kinnear said.
The food trailer will expand our reach beyond markets allowing us to share our ethical and sustainable farming message with a much wider community.
“It will also allow us to serve a fresher product,” Mr Kinnear said. “By giving us a mobile kitchen it will also enable us to respond with greater flexibility.”
