Rural Aid

Rural Aid stands with farmers when they need us most.

Rural Aid provides critical support to farmers affected by natural disaster through financial, water, fodder and volunteer assistance.

Rural Aid also offers free, confidential counselling to registered farmers and their families. Our vision is to help safeguard farmers by supporting their sustainability to endure the many challenges they face.

We work with community groups and industry to deliver programs that help connect and sustain rural centres. All we do is to support farmers – our mates in the bush. 

Originally formed to provide farmers with hay through our Buy A Bale program, Rural Aid has now grown to incorporate:
