Professional agricultural networking organisation Future Farmers Network, has recently moved to Tamworth, in an effort to further engage with young Australians in the industry.
Executive Officer, Toby Locke, has relocated to Tamworth from Sydney with the aim of educating, empowering and connecting with rural and regional Australia.
FFN chair Dan Korff said FFN believes in the future of rural and remote communities.
“We live and breathe the work of the members we support and it is vital we have eyes and ears throughout rural and regional Australia,” he said.
“As it stands we have board members based all over Australia as well as a Bookkeeper in Coonamble. We provide a voice for young people in Agriculture while also providing a unique platform for 18-35 year old farmers to engage amongst one another, relocating to a regional area will ensure we understand exactly how we can best support these young people.”
To celebrate the relocation, FFN have partnered with Seftons, a national communications agency specialising in the agribusiness sector, in a shared office arrangement.
Similarly to FFN, Seftons understands country Australia, they take a leadership role in the bush and encourage a vibrant future for all people living and working in rural and regional Australia.
Seftons Founder and managing director Robbie Sefton said they are thrilled to partner with FFN.
“Seftons worked on many projects to communicate important economic, social and environmental messages to both urban and rural and regional audiences,” Ms Sefton said.
“We have a long standing and successful partnership with FFN, having worked with them on a number of national programs for young people in agriculture. We are excited that such an important organisation such as FFN is decentralising and we are looking forward to assisting them to grow their network.”
