Smart Farm Business Webinar Series

The Farm Business Resilience Program have launched a webinar series “Smart Farm Business” with The Exchange, in partnership with Humans of Agriculture. During this series you will hear stories of people who had an idea and have taken this idea and made it into a successful business. But it hasn’t been all bright and shiny along the way. You will hear how they tackled the challenges and hurdles and the lessons learned and we hope you too can take some learnings or “ah ha” moments and apply them to your own business.

Watch the case studies related to the Smart Farm Business webinar series and hear about stories of every day farm business operators and their families as they share their experiences utilising available services

Mate Helping Mate Podcast

Mate helping Mate is a small business operated by John Harper and is based at Stockinbingal NSW. ‘Mate helping Mate’ is John’s simple philosophy or strategy.

“It comes back to the fact that most blokes are like me. I couldn't help myself with my mental illness, but as an Aussie I believe you do anything for a mate. I realised that my mates were struggling, and other people were too. And by getting my mates together and talking about our struggles and feelings, I discovered it picked me up, too. Active mateship was a positive in my life.”

The Mate Helping Mate Podcast has proven to be incredibly successful in attracting listeners and in promoting positive strategies in our Australian rural communities. John works with people in remote rural communities to talk about their life, struggles, wins, losses and the way forward as they deal with life and all its adversities including devastating bush fires, droughts and floods.
