About

The Western Australian Farmers Federation (Inc) (WAFarmers) is the largest and most influential agricultural advocacy group in Western Australia.

WAFarmers represents the voice of farmers throughout Western Australia and is continually working towards a more viable, profitable and sustainable future for the agricultural industry.

As part of this pursuit, WAFarmers develops corporate partnerships with companies who provide a service to WAFarmers members, which place money directly back into farmers pockets.

In order to best represent the interests of our members, WAFarmers has 17 zones across WA which are championed by zone presidents and co-ordinators. These individuals work hard to provide WAFarmers with information that comes direct from the farm. This enables our members to express their views at a local level without having to head to the city. 

Founded in 1912, WAFarmers boasts a membership of over 3,500 farmers throughout Western Australia and continues to work directly with farmers on issues related to their on-farm business such as:

  • Agricultural Protection
  • Animal health and welfare
  • Commodity marketing, promotion and trade
  • Environment, land management and climate change
  • Farm business, economics and trade
  • Grower/producer representation including young farmers
  • Industrial relations
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Property and water rights
  • Research, development and biotechnology
  • Transport and rural infrastructure
  • Education and training

 

testimonials

Our business is a member of WAFarmers because we want to support our industry and ensure farmers have input into the decisions made by governments and others that have such a big impact on how we can farm. Through WAFarmers I have enjoyed meeting and working with some really committed farmers and pastoralists who put in many, many volunteer hours in trying to make a difference for their industry. We all need to do our bit in support of our industry - many voices will give us a stronger voice.
