Farm Rescue

Just like the reality TV shows that fixes up houses, we recognised there was a need for such a service in the bush. Apart from fixing up homes which mainly includes minor works, our teams of volunteers fence, fix vehicles, airconditioning and heating and range of jobs that just get put off. Come and join our Farm Army volunteers on a Farm Rescue trip and help us change people’s lives.

What happens on a Farm Rescue?

Farm Rescues entail a group of volunteers and some tradespeople visiting remote and rural areas to help fix infrastructure that farmers do not have the skill, time or money to do themselves.

Jobs range from painting and fencing through to electrical, plumbing, construction, mechanical and gardening.

Farm Rescue trips usually consist of 8-10 skilled volunteers working on one or many properties or a community project for up to a week.

Donations drive the Farm Rescue Campaign

Our Farmers in drought areas of QLD and NSW are in desperate need of support.

And the Farmer Feedback is...

Recently, Rural Aid did a Farm Rescue at Pillage. A group of volunteers fixed the one of the farmer's house. Farmers were very happy with how Rural Aid helped them.






Testimonials

Loved the trip.

My wife and I had a great week at Binnaway Farm Rescue - help building two new veranda's and tidying up around the property. The hospitality was great and we made some new friends. Donating our time gave us a great feeling inside and we will be definitely going on another trip.
