About Gippsland Ag

A passionate group of Central and East Gippsland farmers and service providers joined forces to form a group with the desire to improve productivity, profitability and sustainability using genuine product research trials and demonstrations relevant to the Central and East Gippsland areas.

The Gippsland Agricultural Group utilises the buffer zone land located at the Bairnsdale Aerodrome—under a lease arrangement with the East Gippsland Shire Council to operate a research farm. The Group's goal is to establish a dryland research farm of commercial scale.

The Group targets farmers in the Central and East Gippsland areas who are genuinely interested in continuous improvement of their farming practices.

The Gippsland Agricultural Group is an incorporated non for profit, volunteer organisation that is driven and managed by farmers, for farmers.

OUR VISION – To be a leading organisation in showcasing resilience, sustainable and profitable agriculture in Gippsland through collaboration, innovation, research and education.

OUR MISSION - To establish the first Gippsland based dryland research farm with the aim to;

  1. Unlock the production potential of agricultural land in Central and East Gippsland
  2. Test, trial, analyse and evaluate initiatives that are progressive, diverse and innovative in modern farming systems
