Broadacre Cropping and Opportunity Livestock – Grower, Corak, Victoria
GROWTH AWARDS 2014 WINNER: COMMUNITY & PEOPLE
The Campbell family has farmed in the Donald area for the past five generations. It’s a history Adam Campbell is incredibly proud of, and it has driven his motivation to give back to the local community. After completing agricultural college, Adam worked for IAMA Limited, now known as Landmark, and he now manages the family farm.
Adam is currently an active participant of the Grains Research and Development Corporation, Birchip Cropping Group, Landcare and the Victorian Farmers Federation. Every year his family also hosts Agriventure students who live and work on their farm for up to nine months. The students hail from locations like the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA.
“Indirectly this provides our community with an element of cultural diversity. I am proud to say that in some of the above projects we have encouraged sustainable changes to our local environment.”
