Got an idea for farm sector collaboration? Think Farming Together

Have you been thinking about working with other farmers to find shared solutions to issues you are all facing?

The Australian Government’s Farming Together program may be the answer. The National Farmers’ Federation is a strong supporter of the program and encourages farmers to get involved.

The $14.9m Farming Together initiative is a national, two-year campaign for primary producers and processors to collaborate and claim marketplace power.

This Federal Government initiative aims to build financial and societal sustainability across Australia’s primary producers.

Please share this news around your agri-colleagues and encourage suitable candidates to apply.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Visit our easy-to-use website 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 which can be found here.

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.  

The Farming Together team has assembled a monthly wrap-up of funding opportunities, grants and scholarships to help you grow your ag business ideas. You can find this information here http://eepurl.com/cl7U6X or via our website under News. We hope you find it useful.
