The Ongerup branch started in 2014 and is comprised of approximately 30 local farming women from Ongerup and the surrounding towns: Jerramungup, Gairdner, Nyabing, Pingrup and Borden.

Branch meetings are held monthly from February to October and ideally coincide with our local Day Care to ensure mothers can attend. We aim to cover a range of topics at our meetings and have enjoyed presentations from several guest speakers. Some of the 2018 meeting topics have included; CBH: using the Loadnet Portal, Succession Planning: where to start, Flavourista: meal ideas for seeding and harvest, and teaming up with our local CRC to attend PING workshops. We also enjoy sharing tips and ideas centred around the WIFE Inc 5 core areas: Farm Office Management, Income Management, Farming with Family & Staff, Finance & Risk Management and Children, Families and Home Management.

Ongerup WIFE warmly welcomes new members as the more members we have, the more we have to share and learn from each other.
