Farmers & Eaters NE Victoria

Designing projects to boost the regional food economy in North-East Victoria

The project involves bringing together local food producers, distributors and eaters to develop projects to activate short and direct supply chains to boost viability for farmers and resilience of the regional food economy. 

It will build on existing regional strengths and projects, and collaborate to ensure efforts align with existing initiatives and strategies.  Due to COVID, we have rejigged the plan for delivery of this project!  

Have a project idea or want to learn more? – Webinar 17 June 6.30-8.30 pm

  • How are farmers in the North East planning for converging pressures and future uncertainty (COVID impact on commodities; climate; input supply disruption; land costs; compliance;)?
  • How can we better show the public value generated by good practice (e.g regenerating soil) and build support among eaters and others to pay for it?
  • What are the opportunities in short and direct supply chains? What models are out there? What are the barriers?
  • How might we build on local strengths and energy to generate ideas or generate support around existing ideas for practical action?
