This is Australian Farmers - your exclusive behind the farm gate look into the remarkable people who produce the food and fibre we all rely on. Do you have questions about the produce you eat and the clothes you wear? You’ll find those answers right here. I’m your host Angie Asimus, partnering with the National Farmers Federation. We think, you’ll be surprised by the vision, ingenuity and innovation of those living on the land. This is their story.
Today we speak with the president of the National Farmers Federation, Fiona Simson and discuss:
How we can bridge the gap between the city and the country.
Fiona shares some of the common misconceptions about how food and fibre is produced in Australia.
We discuss the big issues in society - climate change, animal welfare and water management.
The public’s perception of the care farmers have for their land and animals.
Fiona shares her excitement for the podcast as an opportunity to get to know our famers.
We hope to see you back on the road soon, to learn more about how Australia grows on the next episode of Australian Farmers: Telling Our Story with Angie Asimus.
