Farm management

To support Western Australian farm businesses, the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) provides farm planning workshops to build business skills, business capacity and a better understanding of the profit drivers in your business.

DAFWA also assists farm businesses and rural communities that are experiencing financial difficulty by supporting State and Federal assistance schemes that aim to build the ongoing financial resilience of our farm businesses.
