The Australian Farmer of the Year Awards celebrate the highly professional, innovative and sustainable approach of our farmers and farming families, showcasing their passion and raising the profile of the important role they play in Australian agriculture.
In its fifth year, the Australian Farmer of the Year Awards has quickly occupied its place as one of the showpiece attractions on the national events calendar.
With 9 award categories, the winner of each category automatically qualifies for the prestigious Australian Farmer of the Year award.
Hosted by Kondinin Group and ABC Rural this year’s dinner and award ceremony will be held at The Langham Hotel, Melbourne on Wednesday September 10, 2014.
