What our Farmers say?

  • “I would like to say a big thank you for your help and kindness. This is very big help for us, it will go a long way for us. I would like to thank all that made it possible for us to receive the hay, The hay maker, volunteers, workers and the truck drivers.”

  • "We received valuable help from you guys, arriving last night. I have been arranging a start date for a contractor for a Landcare project, and sending info for another funding application. THIS is what Aussies do. Ordinary Aussies helping other ordinary Aussies, simply because they can! Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!!"
    Pauline and Adam
  • "Just wanted to thank you for your part in organizing the loads of donated hay to Cunnamulla. A big thank you!!"
  • “I just want to say thank you. It will never be enough for what you have done for my father and my family. We lost mum last year and dad had open-heart surgery 2 months later. He is 83 years old. He loves his animals and treats them like part of the family. That's what I love so much about my dad. I cried with the thought of a bale coming, I was so grateful. When I heard it was 34, I was stunned. The driver did an amazing job to get into the property. It wasn't easy. What a driver. I can't thank you enough for your kindness.” My kindest best regards, Tracey
  • "The work you do, helps to  restore the hope in people's lives that even though they are efficient and run their properties to the best of their abilities, they can still suffer from situations and conditions out of their control. Rural Aid also, helps to restore faith in the wider community and encourages both an understanding and empathy towards farmers and the reality of rural life and the indirect, interconnections of our lives. Drought, drains both the body and soul,  you worry and try to do the best for both your family and stock. Again I would like to thank both you and your lovely and compassionate staff for your help."
