Our Cultivating Rural Excellence Program is focused on empowering our farmers and farms to be the best they can be. Brand Tasmania is gaining international momentum every day and it is essential that we have skilled, innovative, confident and forward-thinking farmers to drive our agricultural industries forward. The Cultivating Rural Excellence program mission is to: Give our Farmers the Tools to Prosper.

The program is aimed at farmers who are / have the:

  • Capacity for personal and business growth
