For 20 years now, Ashley Walmsley has written about Australian agriculture. Having grown up on his parents’ smallcrops, cane and cattle property in Queensland, but clearly unable to grow anything himself, it was a natural progression for him to pursue a career writing about rural industries.

He is currently the editor of Australian Community Media’s only national, fresh produce magazine, Good Fruit & Vegetables, while also covering horticulture stories for the agricultural papers and websites.

When not writing about vegetables, fruits and nuts, Ashley enjoys playing and discussing video games from a simpler time, and videos of a comedic nature, often with a rural theme.  He also writes a weekly tongue-in-cheek column as his alter ego, The Ringer, for the Queensland Country Life.
