Our Future Better Farmed
Our farmers are ready for a conversation with all Victorians about how food and fibre is produced in our great state. We call it Open Gate Conversations. Like a welcoming farm gate, Victoria’s farmers are opening up their farms in a virtual conversation.
We believe in a sustainable future for farming in Victoria. This is your chance to ask real farmers how this vision comes to life on the land.
What we care about
