ACT Rural Landholders' Association of Farmers 

ACT Farmers


The ACT Rural Landholders' Association is the peak body for primary producers in the Territory. The association exists to support our members – the current custodians of the Territory’s rural lands - that produce food and fibre and look after nature on land and water.

Our products are as diverse as our landscapes and our members, from the broadacre grazing paddocks for sheep and cattle along the Murrumbidgee River, to the exotic black truffle forest and boutique vineyard on the slopes of Mt Majura. The Territory’s farms are rich in culture, history and offer a range of visitor opportunities.

What we do

Our association 

  • advocates for farmers and best practise farming
  • improves fairness, efficiency and diversity in ACT lease and license systems on rural lands
  • increases awareness of farming by the Canberra community
  • conserves the beauty and amenity of the cultural landscape setting of the National Capital
  • collaborates with partners across our region.

The association partners with Landcare ACT, the 3 catchment groups and Regional Development Australia ACT & Southern NSW to stay abreast of information and collaborate on project opportunities.

Importantly, the association has good working relationships with and provides advice to various ACT Government agencies and our elected Members of the Legislative Assembly. It is an exciting time to be a farmer in the Territory, and position statements outline our views on contemporary issues.
