NFF 2019 – 2023 Strategic Plan
Formed in 1979 as the single national voice for Australian farmers, the NFF brought together the many disparate organisations of the day.
The NFF has been at the forefront of the nation’s high-profile debates, driving reforms that today underpin our uniquely Australian identity and sense of a ‘fair go’.
The National Farmers’ Federation develops and advocates policy positions on issues critical to Australian agriculture. Our seven Committees and one Taskforce are the ‘engine room’ of this process facilitating evidence-based, democratic policy formation driven by farmers.
