#FestiveFarmGates flood social media ahead of Christmas

As Australians around the country gear up for Christmas, farmers and those in rural communities are getting into the festive spirit by sharing their Christmas themed farm gates and mailbox decorations.

It has been a tough year for Aussie farmers and those in rural communities as the drought continues to take its toll on the country and a hot, dry summer expected to continue into the new year.
