About Co-operative Farming

The Co-operative Farming project provides farmers, fishers and foresters with information and resources to support them in setting up or growing a co-operative.

About Co-operatives

A successful co-operative harnesses the interests of its members to drive its performance.


Three project envoys have been appointed to the project to lead, inspire and guide our interactions and engagement with farming communities.


Our eight co-operative farming champions have been selected for their strong backgrounds in primary production under the co-operative model. They support participants to develop or grown co-operative farming models.


This project is funded by the Australian Government under the Starting Farm Co-operatives Program. We are also working closely with industry and educational service providers to deliver this project.


Discover how co-operatives are helping to future proof Australian farmers, fishers and foresters. More stories coming soon.
