The Facey Group formed in 2001 and is an innovative, highly motivated, organised and well-resourced grower group with a strong focus on our local region. The group works with the aim of bringing the community together to work towards achieving economic, social and environmental sustainability for the region. It is a forum for people in the district to discuss and question current farming systems and how we can improve them, and to explore and trial new systems and methods.
