Skehan Phil & Gerri
Phil and Gerry Skehan
Diamonds Phil and Gerry Skehan tell their story. Both grew up in country Victoria. They were dairy farmers and Phil was also a Butcher and Slaughterman. They had six children plus a foster child and were extremely busy making ends meet. They were involved in the milk blockades and realised that they were not in control of their future. Phil had a heart attack and and Gerry was concerned about what would happen to her and the children. They saw the business and Gerry immediately saw it as their way out. They achieved Diamond in about four and a half years. Today they still live on the land but don't have to rely on it for their livelyhood. They have their freedom.
