Starter farm initiative - tenant insights: review

This report is an evaluation from the perspective of the tenants of the starter farm initiative of 9 starter farms which were made available from 2012 for a period of 10 years.

Final Comments from the Tenants

  • "Everyone knows the burning issues. It would be an incredible shame for us to have started businesses and amassed machinery livestock and relationships and for there not be a next step for us"
  • "Depending on how it [future opportunities] goes … will also determine how we feel about the whole process"
  • "It's a shame if they are sold off, the fact is when we took them on they were supposed to be made available for other people they were supposed to be starter units. The whole scheme isn't what it said on the can."
  • "What will happen with this work?"
