Survey asking Young Farmers about their agricultural business goals The Young Farmer Business Project is a joint initiative between the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI), NSW Young Farmers Council and NSW Farmers Association, which aims to increase the number of young people in agriculture across NSW. Young Farmers have a unique opportunity to have their say on achieving their agricultural business goals by completing a survey before June 30, which will be used to develop a business information hub as part of the Young Farmer Business Project initiative.
