Rural Business Tasmania is committed to assisting the State Government to achieve its target of increasing the value of Tasmania’s agricultural sector to $10 billion a year by 2050. To do so, we need to ensure our farmers are given every opportunity to learn, grow and achieve which are the principles for the Cultivating Rural Excellence program. Rural Business Tasmania’s Cultivating Rural Excellence program provides proactive holistic support to manage complex multi-commodity and agricultural enterprises. We also look to use the valuable resource that exists in industry specialists who are willing and able to be of beneficial support to those in the program through mentoring and coaching.
