Farming for the Future is working towards a more financially prosperous, climate-resilient and decarbonising agriculture sector in Australia.
Our vision is that producers are supported to evolve their farm businesses in ways that maintain and enhance the natural capital to build resilience and improve profitability.
Agriculture has an integral role in Australia’s ongoing prosperity and decarbonisation. However, producers need a clear view of the costs and benefits of investing in their natural capital to support their farm management decisions.
Farming for the Future’s purpose is to provide the evidence and practical support that producers need to incorporate natural capital as part of the foundation of their farming businesses, and to activate the supply chain to encourage and reward that shift.
Farmers, ag advisors and ag accountants are invited to join in this innovative new program with Farming for the Future, in partnership with the National Farmers Federation. The team at Farming for the Future will work with you to do an on-farm assessment and collect data; to demonstrate how the natural resources of soil, waterways, productive plants, animals and ecological health can be connected and accounted for, in terms of farm productivity and profit.
