Farmhouse supporting Rural Aid

We are keen to understand what is important to you when looking for high quality, unique and independently produced Australian products. We are asking Farmhouse Friends and Producers to complete a survey and to show our gratitude we will donate $10* per completed survey to Rural Aid who provide support to farmers and rural communities in Australia.

Firstly, a big thank you for participating in our Farmhouse research project and having your say in the future of Farmhouse. We and our Farmhouse producers appreciate all our Farmhouse Friends 7 plus years of ongoing support!

To show our gratitude we will donate $10* per completed survey to Rural Aid, who provide holistic support to farmers and rural communities in Australia in times of natural disaster as well as assisting sustainability of the agriculture sector, a mission that really resonated with us.

Your participation not helps guide Farmhouse but helps to support Rural Aid one of the largest Australian rural charities in the great work they are doing around the nation to support farmers and rural communities in need. Renowned for their “Buy a Bale” campaign, they also provide much needed counselling services, “Buy a cow” program to help re-build herds post floods, as well as their latest campaign the “Gift of Music” providing new musical instruments to schools in affected natural disaster areas to help bring back a smile to students’ faces, and much more.

If you haven’t already we would greatly appreciate input from our Farmhouse friends and Farmhouse producers to help shape the future of Farmhouse by completing our short 10 - 15 minute survey:
If you are a consumer please complete the Consumer Survey
If you are a producer please complete the Producer Survey

We truly value your time taken to consider what is important to you when buying from Australian growers, farmers and artisan makers, your insights will help to shape Farmhouse of the future, and help us to make it even easier to buy from your favourite farmers and makers. After all what is one the best ways to help an Australian farmer - purchase what they produce!

* Farmhouse Direct a business of Australia Post will donate to Rural Aid $10 for each completed response received during the survey period until midnight 12/11/19 AEDT, up to a maximum of 500 completed responses (meaning a maximum donation of $5,000).
