Farmer Incubator is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2013 and currently based in and around Melbourne, Victoria.
Our aim is to help grow future farmers from an enterprising collective of young people who are concerned about food quality, sovereignty and security, and who are yearning to work the land.
We also aim to provide a more approachable entry into the world of agriculture by tackling the high-cost and high-risk nature of farming through the establishment of a collaborative farming model; a framework already developed extensively in the US and other countries around the world.
We help provide opportunities for new farmers to start small and work cooperatively. In Farmer Incubator, empowerment is key; we help new farmers gain the knowledge, confidence and resources to act independently; part of this is connecting them to the land, each other and mentor farmers.
