Welcome to Farm Writers

The Farm Writers' Association of NSW was established in 1966 as the Farm Writers' and Broadcasters' Society of NSW.

Its aim is to foster communication about and promote the interests of rural Australia in general and the NSW farm sector in particular.

Farm Writers plays an important role in helping to strengthen links and understanding between the rural sector and the wider Australian community.

Regular forums held in Sydney provide a unique and respected platform for industry leaders, expert commentators, entrepreneurs and activists to communicate with a wide range of audiences and influencers.

The Association also provides a forum for rural journalists and other agri-communicators to discuss rural industry developments and issues in a networking environment with people involved in farming, food and fibre processing, marketing, regulation, and rural politics.

Farm Writers invites you to join us at our monthly lunch seminars and at Agribuzz, our quarterly evening networking functions.

Speaker presentations 

Friday 28 June: Is the future for beef in Australia rosy or rubbish? Troy Setter - Chief Executive Officer: Consolidated Pastoral Company about how the beef industry is being impacted by foreign investment, general market confidence and vertical integration, as well as alternative and competing protein sources.

Prior speakers can be accessed via the Speakers Archives link and are on our YouTube channel.
