The RAA is committed to supporting NSW farmers to become more resilient and better prepared for seasonal challenges. See how our financial assistance has helped farmers improve productivity, profitability and viability of their farm businesses in these case studies:
Oyster Farming couple Katie and Craig Russell live their lives to the tune of the tide, so when the storm waters flooded in and just kept rising, they knew they were in for a tough time and had a huge recovery ahead.
A major benefit to the Russells of receiving this grant will be the purchasing of spat to rebuild their oyster population.
“This is going to help us build in the future. We lost all our babies, so that’s 3 years gone but we’re going to buy spat with some of the funds,” said Katie.
“It would have been a much slower rebuilding process and extremely hard and stressful without the grant.”
