Why The Australian Government Needs to Support Farmers’ Markets

A Great Australia-specific video on the economic importance of supporting local farming and farmers’ markets.

As mentioned in the video, over the last 2 decades the number of small farms in Australia has reduced by 25%, which is alarming as we rely more and more on imported goods.

Would you prefer cheaper produce or local produce?

    What a shocking statistic! I’m all for supporting local produce, but often it’s the price that drives consumers’ decisions, especially when it comes to people who have a low disposable income like students. However, if more people knew about the facts in this video, they would definitely choose buying local over buying cheap! It’s all in effective information sharing.

  2. How do the current bush fires affect produce and economic development of these local farmers?
