Emma Germano is Managing Director of her family mixed farm operation I Love Farms and current VFF President.
For over 50 years spanning three generations on Gippsland's fertile soils, Emma's family have been growing premium quality fresh vegetables for local and export markets, as well as running sheep and beef cattle. I Love Farms has a firm focus on sustainability and strives to connect consumers with Australian famers to increase community understanding of food and fibre production, through their farm-gate retail shop.
As current Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) President, Emma has represented the industry for the past two years and is now seeking another term.
Ultimately, Emma strives to be a strong voice, representing Victorian growers and ensuring a vibrant and sustainable future for agriculture in Australia.
I Love Farms firmly believes the health of our soil and eco-system is the wealth of our business and country.
We take every endeavour to ensure our practices are environmentally sustainable, with informed farming practices to enable farming to be viable for future generations.
Emma's goal is to inform the greater community (both metropolitan and regional) about farming procedures and methods.
Connecting Australian farmers directly with the community allows for a greater understanding of food production overall and create a sustainable future for farming in Australia.
