KARARA'S newest farmer Brad Gough hit the Warwick sheep sale last week to make his young daughter's dreams come true.

Mr Gough and his wife, Kara, have just traded the busy Sydney life for that of rural bliss of Karara at the request of their daughter, Alexis, who is battling leukemia.

"She wanted a farm so I said, 'yep, let's do it and start from scratch'," he said.

"The plan is to build the farm up so the kids will know farm life and city life and they can choose what they want to do when they are older."

The couple's son Josh, 13, also made the move.

Mr Gough started his day of shopping at the pig and calf sale last Wednesday morning, where he bought three calves with which to surprise his children when they arrived home from school.

He then made tracks to the Warwick saleyards to pick up a few dorpers to add to the farm, which is already home to pigs, chooks and dogs.
