Hear what previous participants have to say about the course

10 months ago I saw myself primarily as just a farmer, however now I am a risk assessor and manager, supply chain coordinator and business man. I have learnt the basics of business… This Masterclass is for farmers who want to improve their business, to understand not just why you grow the product but also the business behind it.” Lachlan Moncreiff, scholarship recipient and graduate 2017.

There are a lot of people involved in the horticultural industries who understand a lot about production but don’t understand a lot about beyond the farm gate and opportunities for marketing and value-adding. I think that’s where the course is fantastic.
