Farmers and agribusiness have many opportunities to attend events focused on grain and livestock production but they have very limited opportunities to learn about the business of farming.


To help fill this gap, we at Planfarm have developed a program that will help you become a better farmer or agribusiness representative by gaining a greater understanding of the business of farming.

It is a combination of online and face to face learning, developed by the experts in farm business, for farm business owners and ag industry people.


At the end of this workshop you will:

  1. Be upskilled in all aspects of farm business management
  2. Understand your business and have clear strategies on where to focus your efforts to achieve future success, and
  3. Be ready to take on the management and ownership of the family farm.
 

Who is it for?


Farmers of all ages and abilities. We built this with young to middle age farmers in mind, and we have found that it is suited to farmers of all ages and career stages.

We also run a tailored program for people who work in the agribusiness sector who are looking to gain a greater understanding of how farm businesses are managed.



Family members encouraged


We really encourage family members to do this program together where possible. Most Australian farms are family businesses and we believe that a critical element of success is having all members of the business working towards a common goal. Most of our graduates have been couples and families who have completed the program together. There's nothing like having everyone on the same page!

How it runs

You do most of the learning by watching videos on your computer or tablet at home supplemented with worksheets and a few webinars along the way and a face to face get together at the program conclusion. This is known as the ‘flipped classroom’ approach and it has proven very popular with our graduates who are spread far and wide, allowing time, travel and cost to be minimised.

The workshop runs for eight weeks with 20 video modules each of 10 to 20 minutes duration. There are optional worksheets to complete with each module and we run three webinars (group video conference Q & A session) during the program. We get together for a one day live event at the end in Perth or Esperance followed by dinner and refreshments.

Each group size (for the face-to-face meeting) is limited to 30 farm businesses.
