This event aims to create an emotional connection for attendees helping to bridge the gap between urban and farming communities. Many attendees come from urban areas and get to experience a weekend away in a rural setting.
As in the previous five years, Mellow in the Yellow will again be focusing our attention
on farmer health. Mellow in the Yellow aims to improve the health and wellbeing of the
men, women and their families who work on farms and live in rural communities. The
event brings people together and celebrates friendship, community and togetherness in
a unique and vibrant setting.

SUPPORTING AUSTRALIAN FARMERS AND FARMING COMMUNITIES
Farming can be extreme living. Each year is a gamble and the outcome is determine
by what Mother Nature serves up. Farmers are too often faced with challenges, whether
caused by natural disasters, financial turmoil or market trends. Live Rural works to provide farmers and their communities with financial, emotional and physical support in times of need. Over the last 5 years Live Rural’s biggest focus has been farmer wellbeing.
Many farmers selflessly put the farm before their own health. Live Rural has worked
with the NCFH to provide farmers with ‘Farmer Health Checks’ and more recently has
dedicated funds raised to train community members in Mental Health First Aid.
