About Small Farm Living and the Property Planning Tool

NRM North’s Small Farm Living Program provides tailored information and support to owners of small properties in Northern Tasmania.

As a regional natural resource management (NRM) organisation working with community groups, landholders and industry partners, NRM North recognised a gap in information, events and support for smallholders, with most NRM field days, publications and grant programs tailored to commercial farmers. After consulting with smallholders in northern Tasmania about their needs, the Small Farm Living program was launched in 2013.

In the Program’s 10th year, the previous Small Farm Living Property Planning booklets were re-imagined into the DIY Property Planning online tool.
