Farmers who grow or raise produce in Victoria or within 100kms of the state border are eligible for accreditation as farm-based producers, following a rigorous assessment process that has been approved by the ACCC.
Our members produce fruit and vegetables, meat, seafood and dairy, eggs, honey, nuts, flowers and plants.
Many are accredited to sell value-added products made from their produce, such as sausages, cheeses, olive oil, fruit juice or wine.
They may also be accredited to bring non-food products such as leather or wool to sell at markets.
Applicants provide details such as the size of their land, their crops or animals, annual volume and growing seasons as part of the accreditation process.
