This Federal Government initiative aims to build financial and societal sustainability across Australia’s primary producers.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Visit our easy-to-use website (www.farmingtogether.com.au) and complete the simple self-assessment – no extensive forms to fill in.
All farmers who register receive a free one-on-one consultation to discuss their opportunities and appetite to create a successful collaborative group. This could be either as a co-operative, as a collective bargaining entity or as a less-formal collaborative group. Existing groupings may also apply.
The most-promising groups will be offered assistance for product research and development. Areas that are covered include advice on marketing, capital-raising, packaging, logistics and exporting as well as non-ongoing consultancy appointments.
Huge opportunities exist for any Australian citizen who farms within the ATO recognised guidelines https://www.ato.gov.au/business/primary-producers/primary-production-activities
WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
The economic importance of agriculture is most clearly defined in our rural and regional communities. It represents approximately 3% of Australia’s GDP but it is estimated that the sector represents more than 40% of the GDP of regional economies. Once multiplier effects are taken into account, this is as high as 70-80% in most small towns.
WHO ARE WE?
Farming Together comprises a highly experienced senior team drawn from a wide range of commodity groups from across Australia and backed by an industry advisory group representing experts from WA, NT, Queensland, Victoria, SA and NSW.
