Why the Farm Table?

The Australian agricultural sector is moving forward at a rapid pace, facing new and old challenges and opportunities. However, it is how farmers respond to these impending opportunities, and tackle shared challenges that will determine the success of the industry as a whole.

Learning from those that have gone before us is incredibly important to ensure the generational knowledge, skills and years of experience are not lost. Connecting farmers to other farmers, across production systems, across generations, and across the country will give us all the greatest chance of sharing knowledge, growth, and ultimately success.

Farm Table is the first truly national platform that brings together the Australian Agricultural industry’s knowledge and connects farmers in a way never seen before.

Overwhelmed by the sheer amount of content out there and the frustrations and time taken to find agricultural resources and opportunities, the Farm Table idea was first borne back in 2014. Three years of testing, learning and developing later, the Farm Table 2.0 is set to launch. The vision is to be where farmers feel at home, a one port of call to access the industry’s knowledge and goings-on.

The Farm Table signifies a collaborative and open meeting place, a round table of information sharing, for the Australian agricultural industry. The table will be abundant and beneficial to all, if everyone brings something to the table.

A forum for lamb producers to share with dairy farmers, for horticulturalists to chat to cattle enthusiasts, and for viticulturists to talk shop with poultry experts.

Why join Farm Table for Business?

 

We’ve worked hard to create an ecosystem that makes the web a better place for farmers.

Built by farmers, for farmers, the Farm Table is set to become the go-to website for Australian farmers and agribusinesses.

The next step is to connect great farmers with great businesses. Is that you?


We have designed agribusiness memberships based on speaking to organisations like yours across the country. We understand your needs and frustrations online.

We have thought long and hard about how to connect your organisation to farmers in a more meaningful way  and created a membership model that new, innovative and aimed at giving you the best bang for your buck.

Our business memberships focus on three key things:

  • Affordability: our memberships are based on an annual subscription and are very affordable compared to traditional advertising options.
  • Reach: our farmer base is Australia-wide and we are set to become the online home for every farmer across the country.
  • Innovation: your membership entitles you to an organisation dashboard, from where you can edit and upload content, retaining control over the accuracy and timelines of what you post.

In addition to your own unique dashboard, a membership provides three things:

  1. Central Business Directory: Farmers are able to find your business quickly and easily in our Central Table Business Directory
  2. Tags/Keywords: Outside of the Business Directory, you get to choose where your organisation is also visible to farmers when they searching throughout the entire Farm Table ecosystem. Learn more about tags here.
  3. Uploads/content: Want to share your products, content, events or courses on the Farm Table? Upload and share so more farmers can learn about what you do. Learn more about uploads here.

What’s the difference between Events/Short Courses & Training/Education Programs?

There is a subtle, yet important distinction between whether you add an Event/Short Course or a Training/Education Program.

  • Events/Shorts Courses are time specific and more often that not, in the near future. They have a start and end date and go into the Farm Table Calendar.
  • Training/Education Programs are longer courses that are less time specific.

What is the Farmer Exchange?

The Farmer Exchange is an online agricultural community where Aussie primary producers connect online. It’s about building a place where farmers can help other farmers at a time that suits them, no matter where they live across Australia.

The Farmer Exchange will provide a central location for our knowledge to be logged, tagged and stored so that is easily accessible and transferable. In doing so, the Exchange will build a legacy library of questions and answers that are created, edited and organised by us – Australian producers.

Currently, nothing like the Farmer Exchange concept exists in Australia. It is a new and innovative way for farmers to instantly connect with other farmers and will be a tool in ensuring we, as Australian producers, shape the future of our industry.

“Alone we are great. Together we are brilliant” (Steven W. Anderson)
