Ben Fordham’s unofficial drought correspondents, Walgett farmers, Jamie and Gina Warden, have kept 2GB listeners in touch with what has been happening on the land.

“It’s a tremendous start we’ve had and obviously it’s been a long time coming… for us out here it’s life-saving.

“In a fortnight mate, the tractors will be going and we’ll start to try and produce a bit of food for this beautiful country that we live in.”
