Supporting our members' vision for an efficient, productive and profitable irrigation industry in the Macquarie Valley
Macquarie River Food & Fibre was formed in 1996 as the need for an united group of irrigated agricultural producers in the region was realised. Over this time, the organisation has become one of the most progressive water user groups in Australia.
Covering an area from Burrendong Dam (near Wellington) to the Macquarie Marshes, MRFF represents over 500 irrigated food and fibre producers, and is supported by a number of local businesses and service providers through sponsorship and associate membership.
MRFF aims to further the interests of our members by:
Promoting sustainable irrigation in the Macquarie Valley
Promoting and enhancing the positive image of irrigated agriculture in the broader community
Formulating guidelines and policy on all matters relevant to the irrigation industry
Developing and implementing the Association’s role in the management, delivery and regulation of bulk irrigation water
Making representation, when necessary, to appropriate Commonwealth, State and Local Government authorities on matters relevant to the irrigation industry
Liaising with, and where appropriate, supporting other bodies, institutions or authorities representing or affecting the interests of all irrigators
Educating irrigators and all industry participants to observe and maintain proper practices
The direction of MRFF is overseen by a Committee of Management and our day-to-day operations undertaken by our Executive Officer.
