Future Farmers Network (FFN) has relocated to the New England in an effort to further engage, educate and empower young people in Australian Agriculture.
Heading up the professional network for young people in agriculture is Walcha-born executive officer Toby Locke. After a successful career in marketing and PR, Mr Locke has relocated to Tamworth to return to work in the agricultural field.
FFN chairman Dan Korff said FFN believes in the future of rural and remote communities.
“We live and breathe the work of the members we support and it is vital we have eyes and ears throughout rural and regional Australia,” he said.
“We provide a voice for young people in Agriculture while also providing a unique platform for 18 to 35-year-old farmers to engage amongst one another, relocating to a regional area will ensure we understand exactly how we can best support these young people.”
FFN has partnered with Seftons, a communications agency specialising in agribusiness, in a shared office arrangement in Tamworth.
