How to celebrate #AgDayAU

The annual shout out to farmers, National Agriculture Day, is almost here and we are here to help you get around it!

National Farmers’ Federation Chief Executive Tony Mahar said this year’s theme #GrowYouGoodThing celebrating the incredible food and fibre farmers grow could not come at a better time.

“We have an El Nino on our hands and some farmers are facing a very poor outlook for the season ahead,” Mr Mahar said.

“That being said, Aussie farmers work hard to make sure the impact of dry times is barely felt at dinner tables.

“Our farmers are the best in the business. A huge amount of planning and careful management goes into make sure food and fibre still gets grown despite difficult times.”

How to celebrate AgDay

Register AgDay events now

People are encouraged to hold an event in their community or workplace to receive a complimentary event kit – no event is too big or too small. All you need to do is register your event, choosing whether you want to make it public or private, at agday.org.au – and make sure you tag us on social media on the day by using #AgDayAU.

“It’s always wonderful to see communities coming together on AgDay to celebrate Aussie farming. It doesn’t matter where you live, that connection to farming is such an important part of our identity as Australians,” Mr Mahar said.
