The Farm Business Resilience Program
How we help
The program builds the strategic management capacity of farmers/farm managers and employees state wide to prepare for and manage risk, adapt to a changing climate and improve the farm business’s economic, environmental and social resilience.
The program supports learning in areas including strategic business skills, risk management, natural resource management, and personal and social resilience.
The Farm Business Resilience Program takes a proactive approach to promoting long-term resilience, sustainable productivity and growth in farm businesses before the times get tough – it is not a hardship program. It may, however, provide a pathway for farmers exiting hardship programs and looking to improve their strategic farm business management, planning and decision making skills to increase their resilience to future droughts and other impacts.
