Message from the CEO

Small Farmers

Welcome to the NSW Farmers Small Farmer network.

NSW Farmers represents all farmers great and small. Whether you grower oysters in the Hastings River, beef cattle in Bega, vanilla in Coramba or wheat in the west, NSW Farmers has membership packed with benefits. 

NSW Farmers recognises that small scale farming can be a viable business and lifestyle that contributes much to rural communities and local food and fibre production. 

Supporting local food and fibre production and farm viability is firmly behind the ethos of NSW Farmers when it comes to lobbying Government and working with other stakeholders in the agricultural industry. 

It is why the team at NSW Farmers and its Members fight so hard to protect our land and water from inappropriate CSG and mining activity. It is why we fight for sensible changes to native vegetation laws and local environment plans to ensure local farming operations are sustainable. And it is why we lobby so hard to improve truth in labelling laws for produce so that consumers can have an informed choice. It is also why we have a team of Regional Service Managers that can assist farmers and rural communities on a local level. 

So why not join the NSW Farmers Small Farmer network and help us help you. In return for your support, Small Farmer members are entitled to a long list of benefits, discounts and services.
