Murrumbidgee Council Demonstration Farm

Murrumbidgee Council has a 379ha not-for-profit working Demonstration Farm that has been operating in Colembally since 1996. The farm allows community organisations to engage in agricultural pursuits for experimental, demonstration, and fundraising purposes. The land was acquired in 1992, and after three years, a full water allocation was achieved. Since its inception, the farm has provided a financial return to the community of over $1 million through proceeds of cropping activities. The farm has been used for various trials and demonstrations, including a farm forestry trial, herbicide management, and water use efficiency projects. The farm has also been used for weed control trials and is an ongoing asset for the council area.
