Who are Future Farmers Network?
Future Farmers Network (FFN) are a not-for-profit organisation. It is focused on building the engagement and network of those aged 18 to 35 years in agriculture. The Board of Directors currently consists of ten young people in rural industries. They are based all over Australia and under 35 years of age.
The network aims to empower, support and retain young people in Australian agriculture. It is the only national independent organisation providing opportunities and services to support the future of Australian agriculture. Established in 2002, with the belief that it is not a shortage of young people in the rural industries, but rather the shortage of identified and communicated opportunities that is the major problem.
