We promote to all Australians that being a farmer is not only possible now, but the career of choice. We are reigniting the lost dreams of many and sparking new dreams for others. We shepherd a new generation of enthusiastic people back to regional Australia.
Together we build aspiring farm owner’s skills to get them farm-ready. We help aspiring farm owners build skills and find pathways to farm ownership. We want aspiring farm owners to be as experienced possible before they jump onto their own farm. The more educated and experienced the aspiring farmer is, the more likely they will be able to get on their dream farm.
We work alongside regional communities to retain and rejuvenate their region through local farm ownership. Helping outgoing farmers to stay on their land, while supporting aspiring farmers to develop skills and assets retains property and wealth in communities.
Cultivate Farms guides ownership transitions of large farms and properties, with the aim of providing quality outcomes for people and place. Operating with best intentions for people, nature and productivity, we advise and mentor farm owners, while also providing on the ground practical help for farm management.
We believe in good farms, good food and good people. We work every day to amplify the benefits of Australia’s farms to their communities, land and environment.
We started Cultivate Farms to provide the next generation of farming families with new pathways to farm ownership to rejuvenate regional Australia and allow more retiring farmers to age on farm.
We work with aspiring farmers, communities and outgoing farmers to create partnerships and matches in farm ownership.
Our joint ownership model eliminates capital as the biggest barrier to farm ownership for aspiring farmer owners; while providing retirement options for established farmers.
We promote to all Australian's that being a farmer is not only possible now, but the career of choice. We offer pathways for people to own and operate their own farm, reigniting the lost dreams of many and sparking new dreams for others. At the moment, all aspiring farmer owners know that capital is the issue holding them back - we remove that barrier and will shepherd a new generation of enthusiastic people back to regional Australia.
Together we build aspiring farmer owners' skills to get them farm ready. While we are hunting for farms (see next point) we will be finding great education opportunities for new farmer owners. We want to make sure they know as much as they can and are as experienced as they can be before they jump onto their own farm. Also, the more educated and experienced the aspiring farmer is, the more likely they will be able to get on their dream farm - as more people will be wanting to back them.
We are continually finding farm opportunities for aspiring farmers. Whether this is with a high-net-worth individual who wants to buy a farm with an energetic farming family, with a retiring farmer waiting to back youth, or a great lease opportunity - we are scouring Australia to find dream farms. The ball is also in the aspiring farmer’s hands as well. They will be out talking to as many people as they can to find the farm of their dreams in the location of their dreams. Asking retiring farmers, mayors, friends and regional community groups. The more people who know the aspiring farmer is looking, the more opportunities they will find, and we will help them get on their farm.
We are experianced tech-savvy and story-savvy people with a passion for farming. We know we are the right people to make this a reality – we have the skills; we have done the homework and we know we have a solution that works.
