Rural Resources Online was created by an Australian producer working in an intergenerational family farming business wanting to help others access the latest information, opportunities and resources available without having to leave home.
In creating a centralised hub of online resources for Australian farming families, came the realisation that just as important as the practical knowledge was the need to support each other on a personal level through sharing stories. This led to the development of the Farmers Voice.
Rural Resources Online supports long-term positive change in Australian Agriculture. Our aim is to ensure farming families are fully informed and have access to relevant resources that help their business grow and be viable for generations to come.
In fostering a collaborative online community where geographical isolation is not a barrier to success we support Australian producers to achieve their goals, the goals of the business and the goals of their family.
By sharing the stories and insights of people involved in Australian agriculture our aim is create conversation starters that provide opportunities for open communication between family members
We believe people are the number one resource of Australian agriculture. Many are born into the industry whilst others are lucky enough to join later in life.
At each stage of life’s journey people have specific needs and Agriculture in Australia is not without unique challenges. Those personally involved in the industry understand the complex nature of family farming businesses and are in the best position to support others and shape the future of the industry.
As a resource run by farmers for farmers, Rural Resources Online is unique.
From personal experience, we know the last place farmers want to be is inside an office. But as business owners we also understand profits are made when market research, business planning, simple systems and informed decision making processes can be used to capitalise on opportunities to grow and develop.
To achieve this we seek out knowledge from others just like us who are also supporting farming families to develop their skills and knowledge and who are happy to share it for the benefit of all in Australian Agriculture.
