The Australian Farm Institute has been created to carry out this strategic role on behalf of Australian farmers. The Institute’s founders recognised that in order to successfully develop and promote policies that will benefit farmers, it is essential that those policies are soundly based, and are supported by rigorous and objective research. It's main objective is to enhance the economic and social wellbeing of farmers and the agricultural sector in Australia by conducting highly credible public policy research, and promoting the outcomes to policy-makers and the wider community.
