Invisible Farmer is the largest ever study of Australian women on the land. This three year project (2017-2019) is funded by the Australian Research Council and involves a nation-wide partnership between rural communities, academics, government and cultural organisations.

The project will:

  • Create new histories of rural Australia
  • Reveal the hidden stories of women on the land
  • Raise awareness about the diverse, innovative and vital role of women in agriculture
  • Stimulate public discussions about issues facing rural Australia and its future.

Recognise a Golden Plains woman in agriculture

There are many great facets to this project; one of these is its recognition of women in farming, agriculture, food and fibre.

Residents are invited to make a tribute about a woman in agriculture. By sharing what you know about these women, you will acknowledge and celebrate the extraordinary, creative and vital role that women in play in agriculture and farm communities across Australia.

Stories will become part of the Invisible Farmer project and some will be featured on the ABC!
