- We never publicise the addresses of farms on our list.
- Visits are usually arranged several weeks in advance.
- Every tour group is accompanied by one of our experienced associates.
- Most groups are under 20 in size.
- Visits usually last between 45 and 90 minutes
- We will pay you a negotiated fee for each visit.
Agricultural Tours Riverina can supply visiting groups with any biosecurity and PPE equipment you require. We can also arrange completion of any checks or declarations required.
If you are interested to host visits or would like to discuss possibilities please contact John Collins, Managing Director at Agricultural Tours Riverina at email@example.com or at 0419 407 804.
John Collins was raised on a dairy and beef farm near Casino in the Richmond River Valley in NE NSW. After a short teaching stint in Western NSW, he commenced teaching and researching rural sociology. He left academia after 23 years to conduct a rural business consultancy (8 years) before accepting a managerial post with NSW Department of Primary Industries at Murrumbidgee College of Agriculture (Yanco) (10 years). ATR was formed in 2014. Prior to the COVID pandemic its major client base was North American, Brazilian, Japanese, European and Indian farmer groups/ universities/ government delegations. International tours re-commenced in December 2022 with some Canadian farmers.
ATR utilises the expertise and professional networks of a range of experienced farmers, agronomists, economists, entomologists and researchers to construct technical and educational tour itineraries. It maintains a range of insurance policies including Public Risk and Professional Indemnity policies. You may ask to see Certificates of Currency. As part of our own due diligence, we may ask to see evidence of your current public liability insurance before sending tour groups.
