The Farmer Exchange
Farmer Exchange will be a web application for farmers to collaborate with each other, share knowledge, experiences & best practice, to improve productivity and business success.
Farmer can create a detailed member profile where they can save their interests, experience levels with different systems/enterprises/technologies and information/advice they may be seeking. Based on details a member adds to their profile they will automatically see relevant content and questions.
It is a not for profit project and is free for farmers to use.
Learn more about the Exchange here.
Developed by Riverina local, Airlie Trescowthick, the 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.
Its central tenets are:

The Farmer Exchange will launch at the end of April 2018 following a national roadshow to farmers starting at the end of March, where the team will visit NSW (Riverina, and Northern NSW), South Western Victoria, South Australia, Southern QLD, Tasmania and the Great South region of WA.
