Stay Farming Longer and Safer: handbook launch
Our new safety handbook, ‘Stay Farming Longer and Safer: a practical guide for older farmers and their families’, is now available to download for FREE!

Created by farmers, for farmers, this handbook is one-of-a-kind support for Victorian farmers who are aged 60+ and their families.

Our hope is that it will start the conversations that need to happen around ageing safely on farm, and succession planning.
