Small Farm Planning in Southern Tasmania

“Doing this course was the best single thing we’ve done in the development of our property” – Small Farm Planning program participant

In the five years that NRM South has been running an annual Small Farm Planning program, we have provided advice and training to 137 participants on 82 properties in the Huon and Channel regions, representing productive land management strategies implemented across 1,482 hectares.

To find out just how the program has helped four out of the total 137 participants who’ve attended the course over the years, we visited a handful of properties armed with a few key questions and a video camera at the beginning of the 2017 summer.

The result is our very first in-house video case study, featuring some stunning farms employing holistic property management strategies and some great insights from previous participants about how the course has helped and shaped property management planning decisions on their farms.

Check out the video below, and read the full case study here.
