An alternative to the traditional family farming model is leasing or renting. This model can provide a way to expand your operation and increase economies of scale without investing in land, which can be cost prohibitive.
The resources within provide guidance on different leasing arrangements, spreadsheets to calculate a leasing rate, tips in preparing a lease agreement and improving farm lease contracts, and improving tenant-land holder relationships.
As a producer and a person who’s committed to learning, growing and contributing within the Australian agricultural sector, there’s a heap of valuable resources available to me online but they’re all over the place. In essence, Farm Table will package all of those ‘tools’ into one ‘toolbox’ for me, saving me a huge amount of time and frustration. I’ll be able to tailor my Farm Table profile to my specific needs and interests, giving me access to really pertinent information.
