Airlie Trescowthick

Orange, New South Wales

Agricultural analyst, communicator

Born and raised on a sheep and cattle farm in the Southern Riverina, Airlie has a strong connection to the land and the agricultural industry. After school she headed to Melbourne to gain a Commerce/Arts degree before becoming an economics consultant. But she was drawn back to agriculture and went on to gain a Masters in Food and Resource Economics in Canada. Now, Airlie is combining her analytics skills, love of the land and first-hand farming experience to create The Farm Table – an easy-to-use central online resource that aims to connect, inform, teach and unite farmers and students: “I want to help farmers overcome the isolation and barriers to learning by connecting them to timely, practical, relevant and high-quality research and business resources.”
