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.

It can be a bit overwhelming when looking for a particular information source on the internet, and I personally view The Farm Table as a great resource that does the hard work for me!
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.

The Farm Table will save so much time; to have all the information in one reputable place and to know where to start looking rather than endless searching is an asset to the whole sector.
I am so excited for the new look Farm Table. I can already see huge advantages and know it will have a positive impact on our business.
