Future-proofing Aussie Farmers
Co-operative Farming is a program to help farmers, fishers and foresters set up and run new co-operatives and to assist existing agricultural co-ops to scale and grow sustainably.
Co-operative Farming is a one-stop resource hub for primary producers to find out more about how co-operatives can help them run sustainable and successful farm businesses.
Visit the Co-operative Farming website to discover the self-help tools for setting up and raising funding for a co-operative. Browse the suite of self-paced modules and read case studies about real life agricultural co-ops.
Co-op farming services include the Advisory Hotline, the Farm Co-op Mentoring Program, Co-op Conversations webinar series, Co-op Foundations online training modules and Meet the Co-op Farmers podcast series.
The Co-operative Farming: Blueprint for future proofing Aussie farmers report is a comprehensive study of agricultural co-operatives in Australia with recommendations for expanding the sector.
Co-operative Farming was supported by $2.5 million in Commonwealth funding through the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment.
