At Soil2Soul everything we do is aimed at ensuring that farmers do not become an endangered species. It is vital that this expert agricultural knowledge remains on the land. Our farmers and management teams are offered attractive salaries, profit sharing linked to productivity and the opportunity to build equity. This allows them to remain and work on the land they love, producing food and caring for the environment. Our wages are also attractive for new generation farmers allowing them a long term career path in agriculture and land management. Consequently we will reverse the catastrophic effect that being at the mercy of debt and over maximisation of the land is having on the farming population.
“Australia is facing a severe drought of young experienced farmers. From 1981- 2011 there has been a drop in young farmers under 35 years of 15%. In the same period there has been an increase of farmers 55 years and older of 21%. We need to reverse these trends for everyone’s future.” Anthony Dunn
