New Investors

Sugar cane is the most reliable crop that can be grown in the Northern Rivers, and has a successful track record dating back some 150 years.

Given the desirability of the location and lifestyle offered in the Northern Rivers, the NSW Sugar Industry is welcoming more land owners and investors - working with them to achieve a balance in lifestsyle and financial returns through a number of options.

Relative affordability of cane land in the Northern Rivers region provides combined benefits of farming income, flexible lifestyle and capital growth as land prices across Australia continue to rise. Increasing land prices driven largely by the location and climate of the Northern Rivers, has seen the evolution of a range of farming arrangements. The most popular farming arrangements in practice in the NSW Sugar Industry are:

Each major growing region in NSW is supported by a network of staff and growers that provide advice, guidance and participate in research and development initiatives. This collaborative approach is driven by the desire to see all participants in the local industry succeed.
