Agriculture within Australia is now looking for alternatives to drive our products to markets on domestic and international level. With the ability to now put our produce/products on offer online or to connect to different regions that we would not of had access to 10 years ago. With more farming enterprises looking towards their own marketing elements it has opened up opportunities for other farms to do the same. In the end it may be a little bit more effort for a greater reward. Once agriculture see catches up to the speed of which SME’s and corporates are moving it is already of gone another mile down the road… so it’s time that we put agriculture on the front foot.
Have you thought about how you can improve your farming enterprise or your business that is associated with farming?
Get started with your own marketing plan, it doesn’t matter if you are a broad-acre cropper or a grazier out 500km from town. If you are not selling your produce to consumers you are influencing the market place with your produce. Tell your story, someone wants to know what “we farmers” are up to. Telling your story could provide you with a second income that you didn’t know of or to provide that extra element of communication. Take a look at our Facebook group to connect with 689 Farms Advice members engaging with one another.
