Aimee Snowden grew up on an irrigation farm near the town of Tocumwal, New South Wales, Australia, where she still calls home. After working locally in accounting and then irrigation, she returned home to the family farm in 2014. She works alongside her parents, brother and his partner, and younger sister, where they produce lucerne hay and silage for the chaffing and dairy markets. As well as cereals, oaten hay and fatten trade steers.
Aimee graduated with a Bachelor of Agricultural Business Management from Charles Sturt University - CSU in 2016. She works as a Casual Outreach Officer for CSU, and freelance within agricultural PR and communications, as well as a little side project…
When Aimee returned home to the farm in 2014, she created a LEGO farmer minifigure and now shares photos online under the name Little Brick Pastoral. Aimee shares photos to start a conversation about farming and to celebrate the wider agricultural industry.
Her side project of playing with LEGO and taking macro photos, has now evolved and branched into agricultural education, and now career aspiration. She has been awarded as a finalist in the NSW/ACT RIRDC Rural Women’s Awards, a delegate to the Global Youth Ag Summit, a Rural Agriculture Society of New South Wales Rural Achiever, and an ABC Heywire Trailblazer.
"I continually find this entire industry inspiring - and that really excites me!"
Aimee we truly love the ingenuity and creativity behind Little Brick Pastoral, and look forward to following the adventures of "the LEGO lady" and her friends!
