Tom grew up on Wilkatana Station and it was there that his first understanding and appreciation of station life and wool growing began. During his youth Tom worked on various stations in South Australia and New South Wales before getting a trade as a diesel mechanic with John Deere. Eventually at age 25 years, he moved back to the Flinders Ranges where he began as manage on Moralana Station and started a family with his wife Rhiannon.
Moralana Station runs 6,555 South Australian merino sheep.
