By entering the BFEA, farmer/growers are given the opportunity to have businesses evaluated by a team of highly respected and experienced farmers/ growers and agribusiness professionals who offer constructive advice and feedback in an informal setting. Farmer/ grower visits are followed up by a report outlining what was discussed and offering commendations and recommendations.
The judges take a holistic approach to the judging process by evaluating every aspect of the farm/ grower business including environmental management, productivity and profitability through to family and community involvement.
The regional BFEA evening provide a valued platform for celebration, networking, and the sharing of ideas and resources amongst farmers, agribusiness professionals, community leaders and representatives from regional and national governments.
