The Australian Year of the Farmer 2012 is a year-long celebration of the vital role farmers play in feeding, clothing and providing building materials to house us all. From small farms handed down over generations, to our largest agribusinesses, farming is inherent to the Australian way of life.
The Australian Year of the Farmer 2012 is about celebrating our farmers, our agribusiness leaders and inspiring tomorrow’s generation to be the cream of the crop!
Australian Year of the Farmer serves to remind us all, from both rural and urban centres, of the critical role of farming in Australia. Agriculture has made and continues to make a significant contribution to our economy and prosperity. Activities and events across the country will ensure every Australian is aware that 2012 is the Year of the Farmer.
We’ve developed a program in cooperation with many partners to ensure the Year has a long term benefit for both regional and metropolitan communities.
The Australian Year of the Farmer 2012 is a multi-dimensional campaign with many elements. The year asks all Australian’s to celebrate our farmers and support our unsung heroes of the land.
