Australia began in 1997 through numerous requests
of prospective immigrants requiring assistance to settle
and because of Avard’s strong background in Agriculture
and knowledge of the country, it was a perfect partnership.
The business has grown due to the high
demand of their consulting services and now supports
a large number of consultants. In addition to giving
support and various immigration services to their agricultural
clients, Interfarms Australia also assists farmers and
investors both internationally and within Australia with
their selection and purchase of an investment or lifestyle
property, in some cases providing ongoing management.
Our consultants are well informed with
agricultural industries such as dairy, beef cattle, sheep,
piggery, poultry, cropping and horticulture. All of these
industries offer enormous possibilities in Australia.
The broad knowledge available within Interfarms Australia
has seen successful settlement of migrants and investors
on cropping farms, dairies, piggeries, fruit farms, lifestyle
farms, and the development of a mushroom farm.
Interfarms Australia provides management
and administrative services for several farms on behalf
of investors and investor syndicates. Professional conduct,
requests from clients, coupled with a uniquely specialised
service and a close working relationship with other Interfarms
Consultants located in other countries, has seen the
business grow rapidly.
Maggie gained a degree
in Theology and a diploma in Ministry and has practised
as an ordained
minister. She is a great support system for Avard and
gives wonderful encouragement to the clients both telephonically
or personally through their migration process.
John was raised and
educated in horticulture in Holland and migrated to Australia
in 1981. For the
past 17 years he had a very successful dairy farming
enterprise in the irrigation districts of Northern Victoria.
It is known for its first-rate pastures, good cow health,
production and excellent economic returns. Having sold
the dairy John now owns and operates a mixed farm in
the Murray Valley irrigation district in southern New
South Wales, growing crops, Lucerne and raising cattle
and sheep. He also finds time to assist Interfarms Australia
and their clients, informing them about the Riverina
and Northern Victoria irrigation districts, the systems
of farming, irrigation, pasture production, etc. John's
vast experience is of great value in teaching and supporting
clients after settlement in these districts.
and Saskia immigrated to Tasmania with the assistance
of Interfarms Australia. They had
a successful mixed farming enterprise in Holland with
dairy and cropping. They are now happily living and working
on the Tasmanian North Coast on their coastal dairy farm
with their four young children. Even though they have
a dairy farm with 180 cows they still find time to assist
our clients visiting the Northern Tasmania region.
Herman and Saskia are great ambassadors
for Interfarms as they were completely satisfied with
the services provided to them throughout the whole of
their migration process from farm selection, purchasing,
settlement through to aftercare.
