Welcome to Southern Dirt

Southern Dirt is one of Western Australia’s leading grower groups, encompassing some of the WA's most productive land, representing some of the states' most innovative farmers. Our region extends from Frankland to Williams in one direction and Busselton to east of Katanning in the other. 

Supported by a dedicated committee of farmers and industry specialists our aim is to create and sustain vibrant, healthy, prosperous farms and communities through:

  • The delivery of innovative research and development activities that have high value impact on farmers in our region and throughout Australia
  • Introduction, information and showcasing of innovative technologies and systems
  • Interactive collaborations with Government – local, state and federal, Leading R and D companies, Industry bodies, other Grower Groups, Agricultural R and D funding bodies, education institutions and local community organisations and businesses within the region.
  • Alliances and amalgamations with smaller grower and NRM groups in the region.
  • Development of a highly interactive hub model to manage local engagement

We also have a young farmers network that aims to support, coach and inspire our young and developing farmers to grow a sustainable agribusiness and cultivate personal and professional relationships across WA's Southwest and beyond. 


To grow the productivity and profitability of mixed farming in the Southern region of WA!
