Small Farm Planning Program

Do you own a small property of up to 100 hectares? Are you in the Huon Valley or Channel region? Would you like to get the best out of your land?

South is running a ‘Small Farm Planning Program’ in the Huon and Channel region between October and November 2017. A property management plan can help to sort through the decisions to create the property that you want. If you’ve just bought a small farm, or have had it a while but don’t know where to start; need help prioritising a long list of jobs, or wondering ‘how many animals can I have?’ or ‘how do I manage my weed problem?’, then consider a property management plan.

The program content will include:

  • Five workshops delivered by experts on a range of subjects from grazing to weed control
  • A wealth of information on land management with experts on-hand to bounce ideas off
  • A work book and group session support to develop individual property management plans
  • Personalised property maps/aerial photographs
  • Ongoing support by NRM South and the opportunity to join existing networks

This program can help you identify:

  • Your property’s assets, land capability and management requirements
  • Your property vision and goals relating to lifestyle, family, environmental and financial aspirations
  • Your key resources and risks
  • Your key priorities and how you are going to implement them
