Tablelands Farming Systems


A new farming systems group has been established in our region known as Tablelands Farming Systems Inc. (TFS).

TFS has been developed primarily as a research, development  and extension based organisation based in the Crookwell region however  membership is drawn from throughout the Southern Tablelands and as far as the ACT region.

TFS’s principle  aim is to assist farmers and their businesses to become more profitable and resilient in the face of shrinking government support for traditional research and extension services.

The group aims to recruit members from progressive farm businesses across many enterprises including wool, beef, meet sheep, cropping and livestock. Small area farmers and producers of niche enterprises are most welcome to participate.

  • Tom McGuinness (Chair)
  • John Klem (Vice Chair)
  • Gary Kadwell
  • Peter King
  • Phil Graham
  • Skye Ward

Local Agronomist Chris Houghton is the Interim Executive Officer of Tablelands Farming Systems.
