    Agribuzz, hosted by National Australia Bank.

    POSTPONED

    New date TBC

    Due to increasing COVID-19 infections in Sydney, our first event for 2022 has been postponed.

    Farm Writers will set a new date for Agribuzz with NAB Regional and Agri Banking as soon as the situation becomes clearer.

    The guest speaker is Michael Hope, of Hope Estate, a self-described “simple bloke” from Young who's achievements are anything but simple.

    After studying to be a pharmacist and owning six pharmacies by the age of 29, Michael had a 'vine-change' and moved to a vineyard in the Hunter Valley. 12 years later he had the opportunity to buy the iconic Rothbury Estate, which is now known as Hope Estate and hosts concerts featuring artists like Fleetwood Mac and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    Agribuzz is a smart casual event providing professional networking and development opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere. NAB Regional and Agri Banking is a valued corporate member of the Farm Writers’ Association of NSW Inc. and has been an enthusiastic supporter of Agribuzz from the outset eleven years ago.

    Once we set a new date, we hope you will join us over drinks and canapés, to exchange business intelligence and views, enjoy a brief presentation from a leader in their field, and mingle with peers.

    The NFF’s 2022 election wish list

    Friday 4 March 2022

    12:30 for 1pm

    Book now to hear President Fiona Simson outline the commitments the NFF will be seeking at the federal election.

    With a federal election in the air, come and hear from the President of the National Farmers’ Federation, Fiona Simson, about the agriculture sector’s 2022 Federal election wishlist.

    As the Australian farm sector powers ahead on its journey to $100bn in farmgate production by 2030, what reforms and commitments are the nation’s peak farming body seeking from our national political leaders?

    How can this election confirm the role of agriculture in Australia’s post-COVID economic recovery and what challenges and opportunities must the next parliament tackle in the interest of Australia’s farmers?

    Fiona Simson is the first woman to hold the post of NFF President.

    A mixed farmer and grazier with tertiary qualifications in business and education, Fiona’s passion for local food production and the growth and sustainability of rural and regional Australia has led to her current career in agricultural advocacy and as a non-Executive Director.
