Western Magazine -November 7, 2017

An online farming tool that provides the latest high-quality farming knowledge, services and products to keep farmers on top of the ever innovating and evolving Australian agricultural industry will be launched live this Thursday.

The Farm Table live launch at 1pm.

“Farming is complex,” the Farm Table founder and young Riverina farmer, Airlie Trescowthick said.

“I created the Farm Table so that farmers can access the best and most relevant information for their farming business, without any cost to them or huge investment of their time,” she said.

“It’s just the beginning for farmers to harness the possibility of online collaboration,” says Airlie. “We are quickly becoming the number-one online home for farmers and I am looking forward to speaking Live to farmers across Australia at their farm tables, this Thursday.”

Farm Manager Tom Heggaton, a rising leader in the Australian beef industry said the future of farming relies on farmers harnessing technological influence.

“The ability to have a one-stop central site that previews and accumulates similar groups of data and information is hugely beneficial and makes my life easier,” Mr Heggaton said.

Farmers will join live with an industry panel who will be sharing their views on what the best producers are doing on farm, and shed light on future farming risks and how to turn them into opportunities.

Speakers include Pip Job from Young Farmer Business project and John Harvey, AgriFutures Australia.

“Tuning in live, farmers will find out how to get started on the Farm Table,” Ms Trescowthick said.

“We will be explaining how to use the site—for farmers who want to keep learning to improve their farm—how to find the right information without any frustration and keep up with new technologies and innovations.”

The table is set. Farmers are invited to join the launch by signing up at


When: Thursday, November 9 at 1pm AEST.
