The 2017 Tasmanian Farmers & Graziers Association Gala Dinner is the ideal place to build on that strength and join together to celebrate all that is good about Tasmanian agriculture – the innovation, the resourcefulness, the sense of community, and the pride that we have in being one of the key pillars of the State’s economy. Our guest speaker is an iconic contributor to the agricultural sector.  Enq. comms@tfga.com.au – 63321800
