George the Farmer is Australia's best-loved farming character. Since he was first launched in July 2014 as an interactive story app, the George the Farmer brand, subsequent products and performances have won national awards, been backed up by five star reviews and delighted many kiddies and adults alike all over Australia - and further afield. Created by friends Simone Kain and Ben Hood, in regional South Australia, George is playing an extremely important role in educating children about farming practices along with how food and fibre (natural fabrics) are produced.
