One of the men behind the Australian Year of the Farmer says 2012 is a good year to be in agriculture.
Geoff Bell is the managing director of AYOF.
“Farming is actually the world’s largest growth business,” he said.
“As the population of the world grows, and it is growing very, very rapidly and it will for the next 40 or 50 years or so, agriculture is going to play an absolutely essential role in feeding and clothing and housing all of those extra people.”
Mr Bell says the idea for a special year started years ago when he and a colleague became concerned that the agricultural presence at big city shows was being overtaken by entertainment. Are you looking for an Australian farm to complete your harvest work or find a second year visa job, well you’ve come to the right place!
