Our Future Better Farmed
Our farmers were ready for a conversation with all Victorians about how food and fibre is produced in our great state. We called it Open Gate Conversations. Like a welcoming farm gate, Victoria’s farmers opened 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.
