Aussie Farmer Time
The Australian Farmer Time program creates engaging and interactive food and fibre learning experiences by connecting classrooms with selected primary producers across Australia. Farmer Time sessions are recorded on site and provide students with an opportunity to virtually visit farms and explore the journey from paddock to plate or farm to fibre. Each online session has a curriculum focus; is targeted to specific year groups; and is accompanied by a series of learning resources to support staff in addressing cross-curriculum priorities such as sustainability, to enrich the learning experience.

Farmer Time sessions provide the most meaningful learning experiences when incorporated into a larger teaching program. They can be used to introduce topics and concepts, consolidate learning or both.
