FREE AG.Biz Ready Program open to Central West, Northern Tablelands, Riverina & South East NSW young farmers

A FREE micro-learning program that helps young farmers thrive in the good times and survive when the going gets tough is available to all those operating across the NSW Central West, Northern Tablelands, Riverina and Central West regions.


Registrations are now open for the first round of AG.Biz Ready program modules in each region, to be released on April 2, 2024, and continue until June.

Funded by the Young Farmer Business Program, an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries, the AG.Biz Ready program is a Resilient Ready Business Community Resilience (BCR) Toolkit solution.

Young Farmer Business Program project officer Emma Clifton said: “We recognise the benefits of inter-generational learning and welcome all farmers from the Central West, Northern Tablelands, Riverina and Central West regions. If you are a current or future farm owner, manager and operator or farmhand, this program is just for you.”

Focused on 5-minute intervals, the program is for every young farmer who thinks getting “future ready” in business is too complex, expensive or time consuming.

Resilient Ready program coordinator Bekah Baynard-Smith said: "We are now living and working in a new era of compound disasters. Taking time to work 'on' your farm business has never been more important, particularly for young farming communities.”

Throughout the 10-week program, young farmers will benefit from:

  • 10 micro-learning modules relevant to regional business needs

  •  2-minute video case studies in each module filmed with a local business peer

Workshops in Forbes and Narromine, Inverell and Walcha, Temora and Holbrook, Nowra and Bega, and online to build connections and support shared success

Module topics include: linchpin, getting the right insurance, cybersecurity, financial viability, happy at work, business networks, financial hardship, the right team, transforming what you know and disasters can bring opportunities.

All participants build a tailored online Toolkit which includes simple worksheets and blogs to help young farmers take small steps towards thriving in the good times and surviving the hard times.
