You don’t need a farm to farm, and you don’t need to be a farmer to have your land be productive. There are ways to make your land more productive:
- farming with neighbours,
- bringing on farmers via lease arrangement, and
- share farming.
If you have land and want it to be used, or are a farmer wanting to farm, please check out the below resources and get in touch with our Agricultural Extension Officer, Andrew Cameron at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 02 6626 7223.
Learn about collaborative models and access an array of resources and case studies, models and co-operative business planning tools on the Farming Together website.
