Celebrating the farming families of the SA Murray-Darling Basin
Family farming is vital to the SA Murray-Darling Basin region. More than 80% of the land in our region is used for growing and producing a diverse array of food and fibre - from lamb, beef, pork, chicken, grains, fruit and vegetables, to wool, milk, wine and fish.
Our farmers play an important role in caring for the land and understand that to supply good quality products they need a healthy environment. As farming families, they also want to pass the farm to the next generation in a better state than how they received it.
The following videos were developed during the 2014 International Year of Family Farming and tell the stories of four farming families across the SA Murray-Darling Basin region. You can read their stories, and those of an additional eight families in the Celebrating farming families booklet click here.
